Surrey's MacKenzie Rolland is back from a recent varsity lacrosse event in Oregon where her team – the Devils – was the talk of the tournament.

And not just because they were the only Canadian team at the University of Oregon event.

Thanks to an undefeated 11-game record she credits to teamwork and strong defence, the Devils were able to win the varsity championship title.

The success is sweet for Rolland, a Grade 12 student who's played boy's box lacrosse for most of her career, and only recently made the switch to girls' field lacrosse.

Playing midfield, Rolland was a major contributor on the scoreboard as she made her third appearance at the tournament.

Each participating team received coaching from a current player on the U of O team.

The Canadian team was comprised of nine players from Maple Ridge, Ladner, Port Coquitlam, Burnaby, New Westminster, and Rolland from Surrey.

Rolland intends to pursue lacrosse at the NCAA level next fall, along with attending post secondary school.
