OLDS — Two youths — Keane Howlett of Bowden and Alex Swann of Innisfail — are on Alberta’s U17 box lacrosse team which is competing in the 2023 North American Indigenous Games (NAIG) July 15-23 in Halifax.
Both players responded to questions emailed by the Albertan.
Howlett, 15, is a player (a minor lacrosse position) and has been playing the game for six years.
“My strengths in the sport are probably passing and reading the play. I am really good at that,” he wrote. “My weakness is my height. I am five feet (tall) and almost everyone I play against tends to be 5’4” and taller.
