Centre Wellington Girls Box Lacrosse has a program that speaks for itself. All 3 teams in the 2015 season placed top 2 and 4 overall in Ontario. The records speak volumes about our players, our coaches and bench staff and their hard work, dedication and skill.

The Intermediate team coached by Brendan Lawlor and staff came out of the season with a 17-3-0 record. Placing silver in the KW's Lax Angels tournament, again in Peterborough's Lift Lock Tournament as well as at Provincials these girls have earned their place as one of the best in Ontario. But our Intermediate program doesn't stop there, 4 of our Intermediate girls earned places on Team Ontario. Thanks to Abby Clayton, Taryn and Taylor Collins and Susan Noble, Centre Wellington was very well represented on Team Ontario on both the Intermediate and Midget teams.

Our Bantam team rose above their own expectations and also earned some medals of their own. With a gold from KW's tournament and a Silver in Peterborough's Tournament the Bantam team coached by Matt Lebeau and staff rocked the floor with a 16-4-0 record. 

They too earned their bragging rights as 4th overall in Ontario for 2015. And yet again Centre Wellington was well represented on Team Ontario's Bantam team with Hannah Petty and Francis McKnight.

What can we say about our youngest Mohawk girls? The Novice team coached by Rick Couling and staff, fought and worked hard to earn Silver in both KW's and Peterborough's Tournaments. They too earned second overall in Ontario in 2015. They also had a opportunity to showcase their skills at the "Get in Touch for Hutch" event in June in support of Mental Health Awareness.

They showed all what it is to love the game of lacrosse, while having fun and creating lasting friendships.

Centre Wellington Girls gave back to the community as well, with a food drive in June 2015 that raised 3408 lbs of food and collected $1700 cash.They showed us that its not just about the game but about team work, community and girls supporting each other.

Throughout the season we witnessed all 3 teams cheering each other on during some of the toughest games of the season. That in it's own is something to be proud of, but I can say that many parents were in awe. Words can not describe the fantastic atmosphere that the girls have created around their teams and lacrosse families. It truly is something that has to be experienced to understand.

Keep up the good work girls you've proven that Centre Wellington Girls Box Lacrosse is a force to be reckoned with and I am so honoured to be a part of it.
