PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
Former Providence College lacrosse player Zach Rogers `14 (Rolling Hills Estates, Calif.) is currently playing for the Langley Thunder of the Western Lacrosse Association (WLA). The Thunder are two-time WLA Champions (2011, 2012).
Rogers has appeared in four games for the Thunder, who currently sit in second place in the WLA standings, with a record of 6-5.
The Western Lacrosse Association is an amateur league of men's Senior A box lacrosse sanctioned by the Canadian Lacrosse Association. It consists of seven teams, based in cities throughout southwestern British Columbia. Each year, the playoff teams battle for the right to compete against the Major Series Lacrosse champion for the Mann Cup every September. The championship is hosted alternately between Ontario and British Columbia each year.
The WLA is very competitive, as the majority of its players also play in the National Lacrosse League during the winter months, while the WLA schedule runs from mid-May to August.
Rogers played 15 games for Providence College during the 2014 season. He led the Friars in caused turnovers (22) and finished second among his teammates in ground balls, with a career-high 46 pick-ups. For his career, Rogers appeared in 58 games and collected 110 ground balls.
