The Toronto Beaches Lacrosse Club hosted its 11th annual Jammer Classic Field Lacrossse Tournament on the weekend of April 5 to 7 at the Cherry Beach playing fields.

Competition took place in high school, U-13, U-15 and U-17 divisions at the tournament which is named in honour of Jamieson Kuhlman, 15, a Beach resident who died in a tragic accident while playing lacrosse as a member of the Beaches club in 2008.

This year’s tourney saw high school teams play on Friday, including a tilt between local schools Malvern Collegiate Institute and Neil McNeil Catholic High School.

Neil McNeil won that game 7-3 and went to finish in second place in the tournament to champs Upper Canada College.

Games in the tournament’s other divisions were played on Saturday and Sunday.

In the U-13 Division, the host Toronto Beaches team won the championship. They went a perfect 3-0 in tournament play, racking up wins against St. Catharines, Peterborough and Newmarket to take the title.
