Silas Richmond is among the B.C. Junior “A” Lacrosse League annual award winners.
The Delta Islanders standout is the recipient of the Keith McEachren Trophy as the league’s most sportsmanlike player. The Ladner native accumulated just four penalty minutes in 13 games while finishing 10th in league scoring with 53 points, including 31 goals.
His productive summer also included helping Canada win gold at the World Indoor Junior Lacrosse Championships in Winnipeg. He was Canada’s top scoring in the playoff round, including eight points in the gold medal game, and earned All-Tournament First Team All-Star honours.
The Ladner native has now turned his attention to the field version of the game after earning a NCAA Division One scholarship to the University at Albany where he is in his freshman year.
Other awards included Victoria’s Patrick Dodds receiving the Henry Delmonico Trophy as the league’s most valuable player.
