It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Chantal MacLean. Chantal recently joined SurDel in her senior year playing for the SurDel Inferno. She was a strong and committed player, athlete and friend to her new teammates. Chantal was the type of player you could play anywhere on the field. Leading up to her position with the Inferno, Chantal began her soccer career playing with Langley FC and most recently in the BCSPL with the Coastal FC 97’s. Aside from being a strong soccer player, she was following her dream playing for Clayton Heights Seconday in girls rugby. The teen led her Tier II B.C. high school team, the Night Riders, to a provincial championship last May in Vancouver, scoring three converts in a 31-5 victory over Alberni. MacLean was also named to Team BC's U-18 roster, and in August went on to win national gold in Calgary by defeating Ontario 10-7.
A Celebration of Life will be held for Chantal this Wednesday, October 22 at the Christian Life Assembly which is located at 21277 56th Ave in Langley. Doors open at 2PM, the service commences at 3PM.
At this time our thoughts and prayers are with the MacLean family and her friends and teammates across the lower mainland.
