Penticton’s Jean-Luc Chetner scored his first NLL goal as a Vancouver Warriors on Feb. 8 against the San Diego Seals.
The Warriors came out on top 14-6 against the West Division-leading Seals. The win solidifies the Warriors’ place in fourth in the West with a record of 3-6.
Formerly with the Maple Ridge Burrards, Chetner has made a name for himself in the lacrosse community over the past decade. He started out with the Penticton Heat with the Penticton Minor Lacrosse Association and then moved onto the South Okanagan Flames in 2011.
In 2012, he advanced to the Coquitlam Adanacs full time in the B.C. Intermediate Lacrosse League. After moving to Ontario and playing for the Hill Academy, Chetner accepted an National Collegiate Athletic Association Division 1 scholarship to the Unversity of Richmond, in Virginia.
Chetner returned to the Adanacs in 2014, but continued to compete at a university level for the Richmond University Spiders in the years following as he pursued a post-secondary education. Now back in close-to-home territory, he is making his mark with the Vancouver NLL team.
The Warriors face off against the Saskatchewan Rush on Feb. 16 at 7 p.m. in Vancouver.
