Team BC Field Lacrosse Co-ordinator, Reynold Comeault (Pitt Meadows) was impressed with the Team BC efforts as well as the attention the athletes received from college coaches. Many NCAA College recruiting coaches attended each game and scouted Team BC athletes. “The Senior Team performed well against some very good competition,” stated Comeault. “More and more NCAA coaches and scouts watched our athletes play. The Sophomore team learned so much in their games – lessons that will definitely set the bar higher in training for their next tournament. Team BC is truly on the college scouting radar. I’m so proud of all of our athletes and their performances.”
