Seven U15 Airdrie Lacrosse athletes will be looking to bring home the gold medal from the Alberta Summer Games.

The athletes who are participating include:

  • Jake Landry
  • Liam Martin
  • Landry Mitton
  • Kaece Sills

Al Houghton, Head Coach of the Zone 2 Team for the Summer Games explained there are 18 kids total on the team.

"It's fantastic representation from one town, Airdrie is the biggest contributor to our team."

The first game is Friday (July 21), They had their final practice last Wednesday. They have an exhibition game against Zone 1 Team today before they have one final get-together Wednesday before the big tournament.

"We started putting this team together at the end of April. Sometimes it's a challenge to bring players from different cities, different clubs, different associations, and different coaches all together and get them thinking the same way, this group has come together remarkably well."

Houghton has coached at the games twice before, winning bronze medals in both games.

He finished off by saying he truly believes this team can go really far in the tournament and described all the kids as overall great people.
