Holdon Vyse goes back out west to Coquitlam

As reported by Teddy Jenner from Off The Crosse Bar today, the Coquitlam Adanacs announced that the Six Nations Chiefs from Major Series Lacrosse have agreed to allow Holdon Vyse to join the Adanacs for the upcoming season.  Vyse played out west last season with the North Shore Indians and joined the Adanacs for the remainder of the season when his team was eliminated from playoffs.  
He played fourregular season games with the Adanacs before playing in the playoff series against the Victoria Shamrocks. 
Prior to last season, Vyse played with the Six Nations Arrows for five seasons, where he won the Minto Cup in 2007.
“We are very happy to have Holdon back here.” Adanacs general manager Les Wingrove said. ”He gave our back end a big boost last year going into the playoffs and having him here for most of the season will add to our depth. He was a good fit and has already made the transition onto our team and he is another young versatile player.  We are thankful to Six Nations for the opportunity to have him here.”
Vyse is 22 , stands  5’11” and weighs 215 pounds. He is a right-handed defender who can transition the ball well and play both ends of the floor if needed. He is also plays on the short man team.  

He has spent some time this winter with the Buffalo Bandits and Rochester Nighthawks in the National Lacrosse League. In May, Vyse will be a member of the Iroquois Nationals team who will compete for the World Indoor Lacrosse Championship (WILC) in Prague. 
Vyse will join the Adanacs the first week of June at the completion of that tournament.

In other Adanacs news, Ginny Capicchioni will attend the Adanacs training camp in order to prepare herself for the WILC Championships in Prague. Capicchioni was named as one of the goaltenders for Team USA.  The American team is also one of the stronger teams in the competition.  Capicchioni made history last season by being the first female goaltender to play in the Western Lacrosse Association and has achieved one of her goals to represent her country in international competition.  She resides in New Jersey.
