Seven Courtenay women rugby players at Western Championship

Four B.C. teams taking on Prairie Wolf Pack in a two-game series in Kelowna

Seven Courtenay players are on B.C. women’s rep rugby teams that are in Kelowna this weekend to face the Prairies in the Western Championship.

Adel Arndt, Chloe Baird, Dawson German, Lauren Sargent, Neila Schaad and Taya Gagnon will be representing the G.P. Vanier Towhees while Selina McGinnis is with the senior women’s squad.

The two-game Western Championship series pits four B.C. squads against regional representative teams selected from players across the Prairie provinces.

It replaces the National Championship format of previous seasons, with the emphasis now placed on regional competition. The players identified at the Western Championship will be invited to participate in future national team selection camps and West vs. East competitions.

B.C. is also sending a U16 men team and U18 men team to the event. The U18 women open Friday, July 31 at 4 p.m. against the Prairie Wolf Pack in a game that will be streamed live on bcrugby.com/live.

Their second game is Sunday, Aug. 2 against the Prairies at 12 p.m.

The senior women play the Prairies on July 31 at 7 p.m. and Aug. 2 at 12 p.m., with live streaming of both games on bcrugby.com/live.
