Twelve Central Okanagan rugby youth have been selected to provincial rugby teams and will compete in Western Canada championship tournaments this summer.  They are:

Jordan Brown (U18 Girls)
Sullivan Curran (U16 Boys)
Cameron Halverson (U16 Boys)
Finn Hussey (U17 Boys)
Jacob Jobst (U16 Boys)
Tia Jordo (U15 Girls)

The U15 and U16 athletes will compete for BC against Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba provincial teams in Kelowna at Parkinson Rec Center from July 25 - 28.  U17 and U18 BC athletes will battle other provinces in Regina from July 30 to August 5.  

These 12 athletes from the Central Okanagan are part of 35 provincial team players selected from the interior.  The Thompson Okanagan Rugby Alliance (TORA) teams performed well in the 2019 Provincial Regional Championships, earning three silver medals (U18 Girls, U18 Boys, U16 Girls).   

Spectators are encouraged to watch the U16 Western Canada Tournament next week.  Games begin at 9:30 AM on three fields at Parkinson on Thursday, July 25.  That same weekend will feature a senior men's Canadian Rugby Championship match on July 27 at the Apple Bowl at 5 PM between the Prairie Wolfpack and the BC Bears.
