The Royal Bay Ravens won the bronze medal game 9 – 2 against Skyline from Salt Lake City, Utah.
“The girls played with great sportsmanship and did an amazing job representing Royal Bay,” said Cathy Kozina, a parent volunteer with Royal Bay lacrosse.
This is Royal Bay Secondary School’s second year with the girls lacrosse academy. It has grown from 13 students in its first year to 25 girls this year.
“We are excited and looking forward to the continued growth and success of the academy and the growth of girls field lacrosse in the West Shore and on the Island,” Kozina said.
