Rugby juniors, Belmont athletes shine at provincial tournaments

Belmont students enjoy high-level rugby experience

A half dozen Belmont secondary rugby players can reflect on a solid out-of-school season, after competing in provincial tournaments as members of South Vancouver Island representative teams.

Rahul Roy was part of the under-15 Tide boys side that took the silver medal at Burnaby Lake RFC. The Tide went undefeated through the first two days of competition before losing 13-7 to Vancouver North in the final on June 28.

The newly formed U16 Tide girls side, with Belmont’s Alexis Dunning in the lineup, earned bronze in their first attempt at the Provincial Rugby Championships (PRC).

The girls went 1-1, then won their final game 37-0 over North Island, for the bronze.

The South Island Tide girls will turn their attention to sevens play this weekend (July 10-11) at the Victoria International Youth 7s tournament at the University of Victoria.

The Tide U15 boys, who included Belmont’s Rhys Carhy, Julian Foggitt, Connor Klatt and Jordy Makela, wound up fifth overall by knocking off North Island in their final match.
