The Victoria Shamrocks are pleased to congratulate this year’s 2018 Western Lacrosse Association’s award winners. Making first-team all-star is forward Casey Jackson. Earning second-team all-star this season was defender Steve Priolo and forward Jesse King.

Jackson was the Shamrocks leading scorer in the regular season with a total of 95 points. His 95 points were the second most behind Logan Schuss of New Westminster for the WLA scoring lead during the 2018 season. Jackson tallied 46 goals placing himself highest on the regular season leaderboard for total goals. This is Jackson’s second year with the Shamrocks after he had 27 goals and 33 assists in 15 games last year.

Priolo had an outstanding season on the backend for Victoria. He had 5 goals and 4 assists this season in his third year with the Shamrocks. The 6’5, 225-pound defender is continuing to play his two-way style of lacrosse in the postseason as Priolo put up two points in the first round against Nanaimo.
