Junior women transition to playoff mode

With provincials not until July 18-22, Nanaimo's junior women's lacrosse team now has a lot of practice time to try to raise its game.

The Nanaimo Island Stone Timbermen can now focus on one final goal for this season.

The city’s junior women’s lacrosse team closed out its regular season Sunday with a 7-3 loss to the Delta Islanders at the Nanaimo Ice Centre.

With provincials not until July 18-22 at the NIC, the T-women now have a lot of practice time ahead of them to try to raise their game to compete with teams like Delta, New Westminster and other contenders.

“We’re not there quite yet but these next three weeks we’re going to work really, really hard in order to get up to where they are right now,” said Victoria Kultgen, an alternate captain.
