Five Mission lacrosse talents chosen in BCJALL draft

Recsky, McMahon, Maenpaa, Jensen and Lane picked by junior A clubs

Mission Lacrosse Club players were hot commodities at the 2019 British Columbia Junior A Lacrosse League entry draft, which occurred at the Langley Events Centre on Saturday.

A total of five MLC products were chosen at the event, which sees the eight clubs in the BCJALL select a total of 48 minor lacrosse players from across the province.

Mission’s Trase Recsky was the first MLC player selected, going seventh overall to the Delta Islanders.

Recsky has had an outstanding youth career with both MLC and Team B.C. The goaltender has represented the province at the pee wee, bantam and midget levels. He also manned the net for the Fraser Valley team at the 2018 B.C. Summer Games. Recsky was in between the pipes for the MLC when the midget A2 team earned provincial bronze.

The MLC’s Cody McMahon was next, going 14th overall to the Port Coquitlam Saints.

Local sports fans might also recognize McMahon’s name from his time this fall starring as a fullback and defensive end with the Mission Roadrunners senior varsity football team.

Also selected on Saturday was: Kai Maenpaa (28th overall, Langley Thunder), Nathan Jensen (36th overall, Langley Thunder) and Ayden Lane (Port Coquitlam Saints).

It’s expected that the selected players will either suit up for their respective club’s junior B teams in 2019, or return to the MLC. For more on the draft, visit bcjall.com.
