Future stars of the NCAA will be battling for provincial supremacy at the University of Victoria this weekend as the school’s turf fields host the Tier 2 half of the 2012 Subway BCLA Field Lacrosse Championships, Friday (Feb. 17) through Sunday.

Victoria’s lacrosse scene boasts a heavy representation with a total of nine teams in the Tier 1 and 2 provincials. Three will play at UVic, and six more have qualified for the Tier 1 tournament in Burnaby, which runs Feb. 24-26.

The Victoria Titans organization has a team in all four of the Tier 1 divisions, U12, U14, U16 and U19. Two more teams, from the Saanich/Peninsula catchment’s Pacific Rim organization, will compete in the U14 and U16 divisions.

On home turf at UVic, the Titans will play in the U12 division and Pacific Rim will represent in the U16 and U19 divs.

Tier 2 medal rounds are Sunday afternoon with the U12, U14 and U16 gold medal games going at 1 p.m., 2:45 and 4:30 on field No. 2A, respectively. The bronze medal games go in the same order at 12:30 p.m., 2:15 and 4 p.m. on field No. 2B.
