A pair of St. Andrew’s College’s brightest lacrosse stars are now two-time winners on the national stage.
Both Jason Knox and Caleb Creasor represented Team Ontario Under-18’s for the second time last weekend at the CLA Men’s Field Lacrosse National Championships in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, a title Ontario has maintained over the last three seasons.
This year was no different, with strong defense limiting Ontario’s opponents to just 23 goals in five games, while both of the SAC seniors had an enormous impact in the championship win over British Columbia.
An offense-heavy final saw Ontario win 17 – 13 over BC, with Knox notching four goals, while Creasor was between the pipes to win the First Nations Cup.
Creasor’s efforts earned him an All-Canadian nod for the tournament, while both players were selected to play in the National Championship All-Star Game.
Both hailing from the Huntsville area, the two teammates show a bright future in collegiate lacrosse, with Knox already committed to play NCAA division-I lacrosse at Hobart College in New York.
