Field lacrosse is underway.  “With a mix of old and new players from Campbell River and Comox Valley, this season is looking very promising,” says North Island Field Lacrosse Association president Marnie Evans.

“Our U16s hosted Nanaimo on Saturday and won 14-6. We have a full roster this season and see great things with this team,” Evans said.

“Our U14s drove to Victoria on Sunday to have their eyes opened wide in a 19-0 loss to the top team of the division. Our U14 team is a mix of players as young as 10 to 14 years and most are new to the sport. They can only get better from here.”

 

The U10 team starts play this weekend out of town.
