Mid Island’s Zunti makes Team BC

He’s only been playing goalie in field lacrosse for two years, but that didn’t stop U12 Mid Island Lightning player Devyn Zunti from cracking the lineup for Team BC.

Zunti received word last month that he made the final cut for the provincial team and will be heading to San Diego for the Adrenaline Challenge on Jan. 1-4. Zunti had to survive a series of grueling tryouts to make the team.

"The first tryouts were at Evans Park, and I made it to Vancouver, where there were 40 kids trying out," he recalled.

The sessions in Vancouver included drills and a final scrimmage before the players went home to wait. It was just a couple of days before final rosters were sent out.

"I was really excited," Zunti said.

Although Zunti has previously played for the Island box lacrosse team, this is his first time on a provincial squad.
