Junior Shamrocks among B.C. award winners

Victoria lacrosse team places two members on all-star teams, Claxton named top goalie

Victoria Shamrocks goaltender Charles Claxton and leading scorer Cole Pickup were among those honoured last week as the B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League handed out its annual awards.

Claxton, who won his team’s most valuable player award, was named winner of the Monty Leahy award as the league’s top goalie and made the first all-star team, while Pickup earned a second all-star team berth.

The team awards also saw Nate Clark win most improved player, Matt Hamilton take home the most sportsmanlike award and Adam Jay named top defender. Non-player honours went to trainer Sven Bornemann, who won the Bill Russell Service Award; team director Lori Morgan, for the Bob Reid Merit Award and head scout Loren McInerney for the Shamrock Pride Award.

The Shamrocks lost their opening round playoff series 3-0 to the Delta Islanders.
