Cow High grad awarded scholarship from Canadian Rugby Foundation

Adrienne Saari, a 2014 graduate of Cowichan Secondary School, was recently named one of the winners of the Canadian Rugby Foundation’s 2014 George Jones Scholarship.

A member of the 2013 Cowichan Secondary School Thunderbirds team that won the provincial sevens and XV championships, Saari is now attending the University of Victoria, where she helped the Vikes to a third-place finish at the Canada West tournament, the school’s best result in recent history. Saari has also played extensively for B.C.’s provincial teams.

The George Jones Scholarship is awarded to athletes who are both involved and devoted to the game and involved in helping expand the game. They are named for the co-founder of the Canadian Rugby Foundation, a former student at Brentwood College.
