Hi, this is Fred Wallace with " Off the Wire ".
This week has been filled with events, Championship or exhibition, at the high school level.
We've had Boys & Girls Soccer at Walkerton, Boys & Girls Rugby at Flesherton & Owen Sound plus a unique Field Lacrosse event at the Kiwanis Complex in Owen Sound.
In the never ending cycle through the years of new & attractive sports for the region, Field Lacrosse has enjoyed a nice upward swing.
Recently Owen Sound Girls Field Lacrosse had 9 players selected to participate in the Ontario Summer Games this coming August at the University of Western Ontario in London.
The divisions the Owen Sound members will compete in are Under 19 & Under 15.
In the Under 19 Division, Kariya Beach & Reese Wilkins will compete.
Meanwhile in the U15 Division Taylor Chegano, Kennedy Coghlin, Cameryn Gateman, Jillian Goldie, Karly Low, Tara Meikle & Kennedy Stauffer plus alternate Caelan MacDonald were all selected to participate
Also of note, Kelly Wilkins, coach of the Owen Sound U11A team, was chosen to coach one of the teams at the Summer Games.
Not only are the Ontario Summer Games on the horizon, but so too are the Team Ontario tryouts.
All of the Owen Sound based girls invited to the Summer games will have the opportunity to try out for the Provincial squad as well in various age brackets.
And while the Provincials & the Summer Games are exciting events on the horizon, closer to the moment is the start of the regular season for Owen Sound Girls Field Lacrosse as they compete this weekend at RIM Park in Kitchener.
Have a great weekend.
I'm Fred Wallace
