On behalf of Nanaimo Lacrosse....
It is with a heavy heart that we write this post on behalf of the Nanaimo District Lacrosse Association…
Our thoughts today are with Snuneymuxw First Nation, the NDSS Lacrosse Academy and all those athletes within our own association who are broken hearted.
Early this morning a young life was taken far to soon and tragically. This midget player was an amazing young man, terrific athlete and a friend to so many.
As Coach Gump says “He was a quiet, hard working athlete that I had the pleasure to coach for the last few years. I am devastated for his family, his friends, his teammates, his coaches, and all that he touched with his sly little grin and his warm heart.”
Hold your loved ones close tonight, say a prayer for those affected and tomorrow, cheer extra loud for a life taken too soon.
