Keith “Mac” McLennan (Field Player 2013) –
Keith McLennan started his lacrosse career as a box lacrosse player at the age of 8 years old playing for the Kelvin Terriers Pee Wee team. McLennan’s love for the game – and his drive to succeed – was cemented, with Manitoba being the beneficiary. McLennan represented his province at the Canadian National Lacrosse Championships 23 times over his illustrious career (6 as a box player and 17 on the field).
Keith’s impressive run on his provincial team spanned from 1983-1999 as he helped lead Team Manitoba to 3 gold medals, 4 silvers and 1 bronze in that time. This attackman was named to the All-Canadian all-star team on 13 of his National Field Lacrosse outings, and was the division MVP three times, in 1985, 1986 and 1995. He was the Division 2 scoring leader eight times in field lacrosse and the top box lacrosse scorer in 1990, 1992 and 1996. In 1975, McLennan received National Honours from Manitoba for the sport of Field Lacrosse.
In both 1985 and 1986, he was the recipient of the Order of Sport Excellence Achievement Award. But, like all the greats, McLennan is not in the sport for personal accolades. Now that he has completed his playing career, he continues to give back to the game. Mac has coached since he was 16 years old, even helping his old Canadian National Field team out from behind the bench in 2000 and 2001. McLennan’s contributions to the game have spanned 35 years.
