Lacrosse talents gear up for July

Mission’s Dunnett, Cooper represent B.C. later this month

A pair of Mission female lacrosse talents are representing the province at the Female Box Lacrosse Provincial Championships later this month.

Teagan Dunnett and Chayce Cooper head to the event, which runs from July 17 to 21 in Halifax.

The pair will play on the Bantam British Columbia Lacrosse Association team, and will battle against teams from Alberta, Ontario and Nova Scotia.

July will be a busy month for both players, as Cooper also competes at the Female Box Lacrosse Provincial Championships with her Mission Sasquatch Bantam girls team this weekend in Port Moody and Port Coquitlam. Champions from that event will be crowned on Sunday.

Dunnett, who also plays for the Mission Sasquatch Bantam A2 boys team, heads to the boys provincials on Vancouver Island from July 13 to 16.

It’s the second straight year for Dunnett at the Female Box Lacrosse Provincial Championships, after she helped Team BC win a silver medal in 2016.
