Brant Hicks walked away with top honours as the Ridge Meadows Burrards Minor Lacrosse Association filled the rotunda at Thomas Haney Secondary School Wednesday night for its annual awards banquet.
Tyler Codron and Randy Daly of the Western Lacrosse Association’s Maple Ridge Burrards were on hand to dole out medals to the minor leaguers.
Hicks was given the RMMLA’s top award as the Subway Player of the Year.
The midget A1 boys’ and peewee girls’ teams were both honoured for winning gold at the provincial championships earlier this year.
A number of Burrards players were also recognized as being their team’s most inspirational players.
The recipients of those awards were: Cole Leon, Xavier St. Peter, Declan Fitzpatrick, Jeremy Gobillot, Kurt Hebel, Jake St. Germain, Will Clayton, Austen Cooke, Jake Loftus, Ty Yanko, Ryan Arce, Lewis Crabtree, Joe Olson, Justin McIlroy, Nigel Marshal, Kail Barteski, Kyra Chidlow, Donna Blaszak, Janica Schellauf, Mason Hicks, Tino Fera, and Cam Anderson.
Mason Hicks and Dustin Parker were both recognized for their work as referees.
Tina Jansen won the Tully Award, as the executive member who has gone above and beyond her duties. Jansen is the RMMLA’s box lacrosse floor allocator, and with the challenges of the Pitt Meadows rink this past spring, she made it work and happen for the kids.
