International tournaments just part of the game.

Ottawa’s Gabriel Kohlruss, a 15-year-old high school student and Hintonburg resident, plays competitive field lacrosse at U16 level (under 16) in summer and fall. But his involvement in sports doesn’t end there.

In spring and summer Gabe plays indoor competitive box lacrosse for the Nepean Knights, and in fall and winter, it’s competitive hockey with the Ottawa West Golden Knights. His love of sports coupled with practice and persistence seems to pay off for Gabe and his lacrosse team, the Nemesis, which is currently enjoying some international success.

The Turkey Shoot Fall Classic Tournament held in Ithaca, New York in November, saw Ottawa’s Nemesis crush Ithaca’s Little Reds 9-2 in a hard-fought match.

The previous weekend, Nemesis played in a tournament in Princeton, New Jersey, qualifying them to advance to Dick’s Sporting Goods Tournament of Champions in southern Florida, December 29-31, 2015. Friends and fans in Hintonburg look forward to reports of further success for both the Nemesis and Gabe Kohlruss.
