Kodiaks Midget C Provincial Champions
Originally a 25-player roster at the start of the season, 14 committed Kelowna Midget players stood strongly behind their teammates and the Kelowna Kodiaks club to prevail as Midget C Champions in Port Coquitlam on July 15 2012. The original 22 player roster submitted during Provincial declarations in early June 2012 consisted of 12 players with fewer than five years of prior box lacrosse experience, and 8 players with more than five years experience. The team saw a combination of late season injuries and other priorities taking precedence in the lives of some players leading to the surprisingly shortened but incredibly effective roster that played July 13th through 15th at the Provincial Competition in Port Coquitlam.
Every runner on the Championship roster scored or assisted in the Provincials. And there were a lot of assists and goals to go around! The remaining hungry, dedicated, resilient Kodiaks roster that suited up for Provincials outscored their opposition a whopping 59 goals to 16 over five games.
Despite adversity, the final 14 players and their coaches ended the season on a high, Championship note. Congratulations to the players and coaches for their dedication ability to overcome adversity. To our graduating midgets, all the very best in your lacrosse futures.
