Scott Ranger, who was surely in the conversation for league MVP, was named the most valuable player on the Nanaimo Timbermen for 2012.
The Coastal Windows Timbermen senior A lacrosse club announced its award winners last week.
Ranger was acknowledged as the team’s top scorer as well as MVP, and also won the Mac Maude Memorial Three Star Award and shares the Keith Westwood Memorial Award for most inspirational player with Cayle Ratcliff.
Ranger, a Nanaimoite and team captain, was a Western Lacrosse Association first-team all-star in 2012 after leading the league in both goals (55) and points (92).
Cody Bremner was the easy choice for the Timbermen’s Rookie of the Year award after being named the WLA’s Rookie of the Year earlier this month. Bremner’s 69 points put him fourth in league scoring.
Chris O’Dougherty and Myles Kenny shared the Best Defensive Player award and Kenny also received the Keith Manns Memorial Award as the team’s unsung hero.
Cory Conway was chosen Most Sportsmanlike Player and Sean Nugent was selected as Most Improved Player.
Earlier this month Ratcliff was named the WLA’s winner of the Maitland Trophy for outstanding play, sportsmanship and contributions to minor lacrosse.
T-men goalie Zak Boychuk was a WLA second-team all-star.
