Cow High boys locked in for B.C. tourney

A 43-10 win over G.P. Vanier last week earned Cowichan Secondary School’s senior boys rugby team a berth in the provincial AAA championships later this month.

"Vanier has held this provincial berth for more than a decade, so the victory was even more meaningful," coach Kenton McNutt said. "The entire bench of 26 players contributed to the win, another complete team effort."

The team will be doing fundraising in the community between now and the provincial tournament, hoping to offset some of the costs of the five-day tournament in Abbotsford.

"If you see them out there or they come to your business, any type of support is greatly appreciated," McNutt said. "They love the sport of rugby and love representing their school and the Cowichan region."

Seven teams from the Valley have qualified for their respective provincial championship tournaments: Cowichan Secondary and Shawnigan Lake School in the boys AAA, Brentwood College School and Frances Kelsey Secondary in the boys AA, Cowichan Secondary in the girls AAA, and Shawnigan and Brentwood in the girls AA.
