Sam Kreeger of the Comox Valley Kickers is in Calgary for the 2011 Rugby Canada National Championships as a member of the B.C. women’s U18 team.
The talented athlete also represented B.C. at the nationals in 2009 at Markham, ON.
Over 100 players, coaches, and team staff are en route to Calgary set to represent British Columbia at the tournament. B.C. is entering teams in the men’s U18 and women’s U18 divisions, along with two squads in the men’s U16 competition. The tournament kicked off Wednesday, with the championship finals slated for Sunday afternoon.
Organizers note the tournament will be one of the largest in the six-year history of the event, with over 700 athletes competing. As the event is a great showcase of upcoming talent, Rugby Canada selectors will be identifying talent for upcoming assemblies over the five days of competition.
