“The accomplishments of these players’ further demonstrates the strength of the girls field program as a whole,” said Owen Sound Girl’s Field Lacrosse President Kelly Wilkins.

“Overall, as an organization, we’ve had tremendous success over the last few seasons, and this season is no different with North Stars teams competing and thriving at the top level of each age division.

“Last year our JEWL team earned a silver medal at the provincial championships which is a remarkable accomplishment,” Wilkins said, adding three North Stars teams rank in the top four of their respective divisions currently this year.

Wilkins credits this success, in part, to a thriving Learn-To-Play program for girls age 4-8 and the return of many North Stars alumni to the coaching ranks.

“We have eight coaches who played field lacrosse in our program, many of whom went on to play university lacrosse, coaching our players this season. These former players are excellent coaches and role models for our younger athletes.” 

The rosters for Team Ontario were selected after a series of try-out camps in the spring of this year.
