All Swift Current Rampage lacrosse divisions had the May Long weekend off from league games, but that did not stop a small group of players from getting in some extra games.
Five boys from the Pee Wee Rampage team have made the Southern Alberta Provincial Pee Wee "A" Sting team and have been practicing with them weekly on top of their Rampage commitments. This Sting team is made up of kids from Swift Current, Lethbridge, Brooks and Medicine Hat. The Swift Current players on the Sting roster are Riley Pribyl, Gordy Johner, Tanner Funk, Kaiden Fletcher and Houston Finlayson.
The Sting captured gold in their first tournament of the year in Red Deer over the long weekend, posting an undefeated round robin record with wins over teams from Red Deer, Edmonton and Leduc before winning the gold medal with a 5-1 win over a team from Edmonton.
The boys play again with the Sting team during July long weekend at the Canada Cup in Calgary. This is an International tournament and will certainly be very competitive lacrosse at all levels. It is the longest running box lacrosse tournament in the world.
The Rampage teams fire back up again this Saturday with a day full of home games. Teams from Medicine Hat and Cranbrook will be in town. All divisions will play at the Fairview West Arena. Come down and watch some great lacrosse.
