A trio of local midget lacrosse players continue adding to their medal haul.

Ryan Martel, Nathaniel Kozevnikov and Quinn McKitrick helped Team B.C. win gold at the midget national championships.

Brock Rose was an alternate on the team.

B.C. beat Team Alberta 14-2 in the gold medal game.

The tournament ran Aug. 4 to 9 and was held in New Westminster and Coquitlam.

It was the the fourth medal of the summer for the Langley players after helping the Langley Thunder win the midget A1 provincial title, the Calgary Canada Day tournament, and then helping Team Fraser Valley win gold at the B.C. Summer Games last month in Nanaimo.

Next up is a five-game exhibition series against Team Ontario. The first four games will be played in Coquitlam and New Westminster with the final game set for the Langley Events Centre on Aug. 22.
