Silver stars at lacrosse nationals

Chilliwack Minor Lacrosse

Local Chilliwack lacrosse players Ashley Heisler and Crystal Blesch both won silver medals at the 2011 Bantam-Midget Girls Lacrosse National Championships, held last week at Queen’s Park Arena in New Westminster.

Heisler was a member of the Midget BC team that went 6-0 through the round-robin portion of the tournament, beating Ontario twice in preliminary games.

Ontario got the last laugh in the gold medal game, squeaking out a  3-1 win.

Heisler played in the Chilliwack Minor Lacrosse system for eight years before making the move to the Langley Thunder midget girl’s team this past season.

Blesch was a member of the Bantam B.C. team that went 5-1 in preliminary play. In the final against Ontario, Blesch’s team lost a 4-3 heartbreaker.

Blesch played with the Chilliwack bantam A2 team this year during the regular season.

The team won the annual Chilliwack tournament and finished fourth at provincials in Victoria last month.
