2016 Review

Twenty-eight teams participated in the Trevor Wingrove Memorial Tournament hosted by the Coquitlam Minor Lacrosse Association. They came from Alberta, Vancouver Island, the Interior, Okanagan and the United States but in the end it was the local teams from the Lower Mainland that prevailed in the gold medal games.

In the Peewee Division (ages 11 and 12) Gold medal game, the Ridge Meadows Burrards bested the Juan de Fuca Whalers from Victoria 8-2. Setting the tone for the Burrards was Jaxon Smart with two goals. The Maple Ridge squad was coached by former Coquitlam Adanacs player Curt Malawsky who is the Head Coach of the Calgary Roughnecks. In the Bronze medal game, it was the Nanaimo T-Men with a upset win of the host Coquitlam Adanacs in a 7-6 squeaker where the late charging Adanacs fell one goal short. Mathew Boas led a well balanced attack for the T-Men with a goal and an assist while Carter Clark scored two for the Adanacs. Medals were presented by Travis Cornwall from the pro Vancouver Stealth.

In the Bantam Division (ages 13 and 14) it was the host team Coquitlam Adanacs with a hat trick from Luca Antongiovanni downing their arch rival Juan de Fuca Whalers 8-3. The Adanacs were coached by Tyler Radonich, Ian Radonich, and Brad Haddon while Brian Spaven coached the Whalers. The Adanacs got a standout game from goaltender Thomas Ungaro. The Bronze was won by the surprising Burnaby Lakers on a buzzer beater goal by Ian Marin to edge the Ridge Meadows Burrards 7-6. Burrards got a hat trick from Camaron Ickert. Bantam medals were presented by Curtis Hodgson the captain from the Vancouver Stealth.

Ridge Meadows Burrards behind the coaching of Lance Andre took the bronze medal with a narrow 6-5 victory over the Calgary Hornets who went undefeated in the round robin.

This year's tournament featured three teams from US Boxla who drew players from all over the United States to make their first appearance in a tournament in B.C. While their teams were blanked from the medals, the converted field players performed well, proved to be competitive, and competed with class. Program Head Shaydon Santos promised a return visit from the Americans next year. The Canadian teams enjoyed their international experience and welcome their return.

During the tournament, a Vancouver Stealth jersey autographed by the entire Stealth team and a lacrosse shaft donated by Cyclone Sports was raffled off with proceeds going to the Trevor Wingrove Bursary which aids male or female lacrosse players in their pursuit of post-secondary education. Wingrove played all his minor lacrosse in Coquitlam and went on to star with the Coquitlam Junior Adanacs in the BC Junior Lacrosse League and finally with the Coquitlam Adanacs in the Western Lacrosse Association. He won numerous awards along the way. He was also a high ranking city manager with the City of Coquitlam. Wingrove passed away after a courageous fight with cancer almost four years ago. This year's winner of the bursary is Liam MacDonald. The bursary was presented Thursday June 9th at the Coquitlam Foundation Awards Ceremony

The very successful tournament was held in all three rinks at the Poirier Sports and Leisure Centre. It ran four days from Thursday to Sunday. The Tournament Director was Heather Wilson who was assisted by many volunteers from the Coquitlam Minor Lacrosse Association.
