Blue Knights Riding High

Incredible Season for Local Girls' Lacrosse Organization

This year’s version of the Lady Blue Knights U19 Elite women’s lacrosse team remains undefeated and are having a season for the ages.

They are undefeated in OWFL league play and just won the Nike Cup at Syracuse University this past week.

Although they are the defending champs at Syracuse they have not had an undefeated season in years.

The core of the team, those in grades 10 and 11, is rather young with only three grade 12s and one grade 9 on the team. It looks like the future is bright for these girls as the next few years should be their strongest.

The girls have been playing teams from Orillia, Toronto, Owen Sound and Peterborough and have beaten them soundly.

Their coaches, former Team Canada players Katie Guy and Tessa Chad have the girls performing on a level rarely seen in the province.

Katie Guy and Tessa Chad (who plays currently for University of Louisville, Kentucky) bring their high level of knowledge of the game and push the girls to be the best they can be.

Hard work and skill seem to be the message as the girls are able to implement the coaches’ systems and finish off their plays.

There are currently six girls committed to NCAA Division 1 schools out of a possible 11 players that can commit with more girls currently strutting their stuff at NCAA camps.

Hence the trip to Syracuse to demonstrate their skill and tenacity in front of a few dozen NCAA coaches.

The success of this Dream Team seems to be rooted in the LBK system where girls, as young as four, start at an early age and develop into one of nine Rep teams.

The majority of these girls played as Baby Blue Knights (age 5) and have developed their craft over time in the system.

The LBK club is the premiere club in Ontario and has NCAA and Canadian universities travel to OWFL tournaments to watch them play.

The club has a spot for all girls no matter their skill level or athleticism and foster the idea of girl power mixed with hard work and sportsmanship.
