Alberni Valley athletes Riley Kuxhaus, Nick Yewchyn and Jordan Lavertu are going to the provincials for lacrosse for the third time—only this time it’s field lacrosse.

The trio won both the 2009 and 2010 Island championship and provincial titles in box lacrosse with the AV Tyee bantams. The boys have been playing together for the past five years and were nicknamed the Mighty Mites for their size and determination.

They joined Oceanside’s U14 field lacrosse team in September.

Lacrosse started back up this past Sunday with Oceanside beating third place Pac Rim twice, 10–9 in overtime and 13–8.

The win over Pac Rim has the Bucs going to the 2011 B.C. Lacrosse Field Provincials in Burnaby Feb. 25-27.

BOX NOTES…The AV Lacrosse Tyees will be having two registrations at the Multiplex on Saturday, Feb. 5 and Feb. 12 from 9 a.m. to noon.
