Fifth place in provincials for Houston secondary girls rugby

The Houston secondary girl’s rugby team won two out of three games at the AA rugby provincials in Abbotsford on May 24 to 27.

“Placing fifth out of eight teams is the best ever performance the Houston secondary girl’s rugby team has had in the AA provincials to date,” said Rob Mark, coach of the Houston secondary girl’s rugby team.

“I am very proud and thankful to have been part of such a great organization with such a talented group of young ladies,” said Denae Grange, player of the Houston secondary girl’s rugby team. “We would like to thank Rob for everything he has done for us and the commitment he has made to each and every one of us to get better.” Now that rugby zones and provincials are over, the season is pretty much done for these rugby girls. An alumni game is being scheduled to end the season.

“I would just like to thank everyone who has supported the team and who have been there in helping us grow as athletes. This was a tremendous outcome and I’m so blessed to have had this opportunity knowing that many girls don’t get any chance to play such an amazing sport,” Jody Siemens, player of the Houston secondary girl’s rugby team.

“The girls played well as a team and showed what dedication and hard work can bring them. I am fortunate to be called their coach,” said Mark.

Date of alumni game is still being determined.
