It’s shaping up to be a spectacular year for 14-year-old Tyler Fraser, a promising Cloverdale athlete who has just returned home from the national lacrosse championships.
As a member of Team BC
Lacrosse, Fraser scored five goals and three assists during the July 31-Aug. 7 event in Whitby, ON.
The team fought hard but lost last weekend’s final game in overtime to Ontario 4 to 3.
Born in 1997, Fraser was the only Surrey player from any age group selected to the BC Lacrosse team.
During the regular season, Fraser plays with the Surrey Midget Rebels A2, who fell just short of making the rugby provincials.
But Fraser, who skates defense with the Cloverdale Colts, is surely comforted by the dramatic silver medal win and his teammates captured at the 2011 B.C. Bantam AAA minor hockey provincials earlier this year.
This past school year, he was part of Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary’s Grade 8 Panthers football team, who won the provincials. Fraser played as a wide receiver and as a defensive back.
If the first half of the year is any indication, it’s easy to imagine more impressive athletic feats from Fraser for the rest of 2011.
