Pee wee pair makes it through Team BC camp

Two Cowichan Valley pee wee lacrosse players found themselves in the running at the selection camp for the provincial team last month, and one will go on to represent B.C. at nationals.

Cameron Lumb and Devyn Zunti were among the last 30 players in camp in Langley on May 17, Lumb made the final cut, and will be donning the Team BC jersey in Coquitlam in August.

“I kind of thought [the coach] was joking at the start,” Lumb said, expressing his disbelief at making the final squad.

The players’ started their journey with Island tryouts at Fuller Lake Arena, and were among 68 from across B.C. to attend the final camp in Langley.

They were both pumped to make the final 30 and play in a showcase game for the coaches.

“It was pretty exciting,” Zunti admitted.

As pleased as he was to make it most of the way through the selection process, Zunti was disappointed not to be picked for the final team.

“I was kind of sad I didn’t make it,” he said, acknowledging he’s proud of his teammate for making the cut.
