Two Kelowna products have been drafted by teams in the Western Lacrosse Association.

Teichreob was taken in the second round, 11th overall. He played the last three seasons with the Langley Thunder junir A team, serving as their captain in 2016. Teichroeb grew up playing his minor lacrosse in Kelowna, before suiting up for the junior Raiders.

Teichreob was also selected last fall in the National Lacrosse League draft by the Vancouver Stealth.

Batt played the 2016 season with the junior Raiders, leading the TOJLL in penalty minutes.

Batt, who also played with the Coquitlam Adanacs junior team, brings a mix of skill and toughness to the floor and will be looking to make an impact in the WLA with his high energy and skill set.
