    • In Memoriam:  It is with great sadness that we share in the loss of one of our lacrosse greats Murray Lehman.  Murray was a gentleman, a friend to lacrosse, and an honoured member of the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame.  His love for the game found him coaching youth lacrosse teams for the South Burnaby Minor Lacrosse Association and managing teams in New Westminster's minor system.  He was the BC Junior A Lacrosse League Commissioner for nine seasons and also spent a better part of eleven seasons on the Junior Salmonbellies board as Assistant GM, GM and President, winning a Minto Cup Championship in 1994.  Our thoughts go out to the Murray family and friends.
