North's MacKenzie embarks on lacrosse fantasy

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – With his first pick in the Major League Lacrosse All-Star Game team draft, St. Charles North senior Cameron MacKenzie selects ...

That's right, MacKenzie was in that position Friday after winning a fan contest for a video he entered displaying his passion for lacrosse.

Representing Team Eclipse, MacKenzie picked midfielder Greg Gurenlian of the New York Lizards, one of MacKenzie's favorite MLL teams. Guilford, Conn., high-schooler Frank Ranfone was the other captain in the event at Memorial Stadium, picking for Team Supernova.

Both MacKenzie and Ranfone are granted full access for today's MLL All-Star game (6 p.m., ESPN2), and will be on the sidelines wearing personalized team jerseys.

MacKenzie, a North midfielder who also coaches at Tri-Cities -based River City Lacrosse, took up the sport in seventh grade.

"I'm really excited to do this, and it's definitely a once in a lifetime opportunity," MacKenzie told the Chronicle this week. "Not a lot of people who are lacrosee fans get to go to the All-Star game for free and be on the field with these great players."
