Home Opening Weekend For Mountain View Lacrosse Association

There are 3 teams playing under the umbrella of the Mountain View Lacrosse Association this season and all of them will be on the floor as part of a home opening weekend triple header on Saturday, May 11th at the SportsComplex in Olds.

In their second season of Tier 1 Junior B Lacrosse, the Mountain View Mavericks are off to great start.
Andy Sweetman - Vice President of the Mountain View Lacrosse Association - says the Mavs posted just 4 wins in 2018, but they have begun 2019 with 3 wins, 1 loss and 1 tie.
The Mavericks won 12-9, lost 11-6 and picked up a 16-8 victory during a 3 game series in Winnipeg last weekend versus the Manitoba Blizzard.
Sweetman says the Association has 3 teams this year with the Tier 1 Mountain View Mavericks, the Tier 2 Olds Junior B Stingers and the new Olds Senior C Stingers.
He says they are now officially a registered society.
The Senior C Stingers team is allowing Sweetman to get out in his 40s and play alongside his sons. He is also the team's coach.
The inaugural games for the Olds Senior C Stingers saw them lose a pair of home games by scores of 15-4 to the Calgary Irish and 10-7 to the Okotoks Erratic.
Sweetman explains their decision to rename the Tier 1 Junior B team from the Olds Mavericks to the Mountain View Mavericks.
He notes they are gearing up for a big home opening weekend for the Mountain View Lacrosse Association this Saturday. 
The Mountain View Mavericks home opener is against Regina, Saskatchewan's Barracuda Lacrosse Club at 2:30pm on Saturday, March 11th at the SportsComplex. That will be followed by the Olds Senior C Stingers versus the Airdrie Mohawks at 5 o'clock and then the Olds Tier 2 Junior Stingers take on the Calgary Wranglers at 8pm.
