Shamrock makes Team Canada

Jesse King made the cut for the field lacrosse championships in Finland in 2012

Midfielder Jesse King, a member of the Victoria junior Shamrocks and a Claremont secondary graduate, will represent Canada on the international stage.

King, who plays his winters with the NCAA Ohio State Buckeyes, made the final cut for the 2012 FIL U19 world field lacrosse championships in Turku, Finland.

The final selection camp took place in Oshawa (Ont.) Nov. 25 to 27, trimming the roster from 50 to 24.

King graduated from Claremont secondary, home to current girls field lacrosse star Aicia Archer. Playing for the Burnaby Mountain Selects 2011 girls’ high school team, Archer recently toured Seattle while competing in an exhibition series.

Archer will compete for the Burnaby Selects at an NCAA recruiting tournament, the Sand Storm Lacrosse Festival in Palm Springs, Calif., on Jan. 14 and 15.
