Ainslee Rushton is quick with her lacrosse glove and stick.
Rushton, a goaltender, backstopped Team B.C. to the gold medal at the 2018 female national bantam championship. In the final, in Halifax in July, B.C. beat Alberta 5-3.
Leading up the final, B.C. compiled a 4-2 record. Rushton was named most outstanding goalie in the tournament. She played four of the seven games, posted a 3.25 goals-against average with one shutout and an .894 save percentage.
At the 2017 national championship, she helped guide B.C. to a silver medal.
Locally, Rushton suits up for the Posse club team.
