The Royal Military College of Canada’s women’s soccer program will be on Vancouver Island this week for spring competition. The trip will give six of the Paladin team members, including Courtenay’s Paige Campbell, a chance to represent RMC in their home province in front of family and friends.

On Thursday, March 17 RMC will face the Vancouver Island University Mariners in what will be the first meeting between these two programs. The game will be played at Merle Logan Field in Nanaimo at 1 p.m.

The Paladins will then face the University of Victoria Vikes on Saturday, March 19. Weather permitting, the game will be played at Centennial Stadium (otherwise on their field turf) at 12 p.m. RMC regularily competes in the Ontario University Athletic Association with all the major universities in Ontario.

Campbell played her club soccer with the Red Tide from the CVUSC and attended many B.C. Provincial Cup championships with this close-knit team while attending Mark R. Isfeld Secondary School. She was accepted to attend RMC on a full scholarship in the ROTP program and is in her first year of Engineering at RMC in Kingston.

Both the Mariners and the Vikes will present difficult challenges for the Paladins, however RMC has been preparing diligently since the middle of January for this spring competition.

 

The opportunity to travel to Canada’s West Coast will provide a terrific window into RMC for those who have little or no knowledge of Canada’s military university and its athletic programs.
