Maple Ridge’s Mitchell McDole and Andrew Gresham of Pitt Meadows helped anchor the midfield for the Burnaby Mountain Selects sophomore field lacrosse team to a 3-2-1 record at the 2011 Ultimate Performance Fall Shootout tournament in Baltimore, Maryland last month.

The top rated college recruitment showcase featured more than 100 teams across two divisions competing in a round robin format.

The sophomore selects posted an overall record of three wins, two losses and one tie, including a close fought one-goal loss to Spartans Lacrosse of Maryland

In six games, the Selects doubled up their opponents by a goal differential of 52-26.

The Selects opened the tourney with an impressive 19-0 win over the Chesapeake Cougars, only to go winless in their next three games. Ontario’s Edge Lacrosse 2014 topped the Selects 8-3, before tying the Baltimore Cannons 4-4. After losing to Spartans Lacrosse 5-6, the Selects rebounded with a 9-2 win over Cavalier Lacrosse from Virginia and a 12-6 win over the Maryland Saints.
