The 2013 West Kootenay Wolfpack Midget Lacrosse team.

Wolfpack Midget Lacrosse team competes in Port Coquitlam

2013 season wrapped up during provincial championships in the Lower Mainland

The West Kootenay Midget Lacrosse team competed in Port Coquitlam this past weekend and the lacrosse gear will now be hung up on another successful season.

The Midget squad competed hard against other regional representative teams and battled to the final buzzer — narrowly missing out of the medal round due to a last minute goal by Langley.

This years’ team was composed of kids from West Kootenay / Boundary; some had never played lacrosse before and others had never even played a team sport before.

“The way this group of players gelled as a team was truly remarkable,” said head coach Tom Frith in an email. “They battled the competition every shift.”

Frith was honoured with the “Most Sportsmanship” award while at the coast. The award is voted on by all head coaches in the same division during the tournament. Dedicated to the team, Frith traveled to Castlegar from Grand Forks twice a week during the season.

The Coaching staff wanted to congratulate the players on a fantastic season and appreciate their commitment to the program.
