GP Vanier sent a boys and girls team to compete at the BC Rugby High School Provincial Sevens championships last weekend at UBC.

The boys defeated Brentwood 19-10 but lost 22-0 to West Vancouver on the first day. Vanier then beat Clayton Heights 29-12 in Sunday’s Shield semi-final but lost 19-0 to Brentwood in the final.

“Brentwood defended ferociously and then used what ball they could grab to out-last a plucky GP Vanier side,” a news release states.

The Vanier girls lost on the first day 22-19 to Houston and 17-10 to Abbotsford, but beat Heritage Park 20-0.

On Day 2, they blanked Rick Hansen 29-0 in the Bowl quarterfinals and beat Walnut Grove 24-5 in the semis. Vanier then beat Heritage Park 26-5 to win the Bowl final.

“GP Vanier never took a backwards step in their final, led by Sienna Moir’s pair of tries (three conversions too). Georgia Bellamy and Lauren Sargent also scored. Emily Skillings had Heritage Park’s lone try.”
