The Saskatchewan Rush will have another opponent in the 2018-19 season as the National Lacrosse League announced on Wednesday the addition of a 10th team.
The new team has yet to be named, but will play out of San Diego and the Valley View Casino Center beginning in December 2018. Joseph Tsai, the owner of the new San Diego team, is the co-founder of the Alibaba Group. AL MARLEAU SOLID AT WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
Al Marleau, a Saskatoon native and current resident of Kitimat, B.C., finished just off the podium at the Multisport World Championship held last week in Penticton.
Competing for Canada in the men’s 55-59 age group, Marleau earned a fourth-place finish in the Sprint Duathlon which consisted of a five-km run, a 20-km bike ride and then another 2.5-km run.
He also ran the Long Course Triathlon — three-km swim, 120-km bike ride and 30-km run— finishing 10th in his age group.
