The Silvertips kick off season

Christina Olver Silvertips

The Silvertips Junior Ladies Lacrosse Team are starting their second season in the Rocky Mountain Lacrosse league. The players are from Strathmore, NE Calgary, Three Hills, Cochrane and Airdrie. The team plays out of the Airdrie Plainsman Arena, since its central to all the players and coaches. Last year the Silvertips placed fourth in the regular season. Former Kneehill Lacrosse players, Christina Olver and Callie Hanger played the first games of the season this weekend with the Silvertips Junior Ladies, and new Assistant Coach Mike Olver. They came in tough against the top two junior teams from last season on their first road trip to Sherwood Park and Edmonton, losing both games but showing improvements already in team work in the second game out-scoring the other team in the 3rd period and Christina (pictured above) logging a goal and assist in the game. The first home game is Friday, May 12 at 8 PM. For a full schedule visit rockyviewlacrosse.ca.
