Rookie crusaders strike gold

Holy Cross lacrosse team repeat as champions despite losing two-thirds of last year's team to graduation
The Holy Cross Crusaders celebrate their second straight B.C. high school Lacrosse Tier 2 championship at Dr. Charles Best Secondary School in Coquitlam. The Crusaders won gold despite losing most of their team to graduation. Only seven of the 24 players had played lacrosse before the season began. Special to The B.C. Catholic.
The Holy Cross Crusaders didn't let a roster overhaul stop them from repeating as provincial champions in lacrosse. Recently I talked to members of the team about their season:
It's difficult for any sports team to repeat as league champions, especially if that team changes over half its roster. But after losing players to graduation, the Holy Cross Crusaders Senior Boys Lacrosse team took home its second straight B.C. high school Lacrosse Tier 2 Championship.

"The journey wasn't easy; we had our ups and downs," said Crusader player Nigel Van Doorne, "but we got back up and fought our way back to the top, finishing where we left off last year."
