Greater Victoria rugby juniors heading to Las Vegas

Elite youth rugby players from around B.C. are off to the Nevada desert later this month to compete in the annual Las Vegas High School Invitational Sevens tournament.

Making the trip with the women's under-18 team are Oak Bay High and Castaway Wanderers' player Caroline Crossley, and UVic Vikes player Nicole Crowley.

Two men's sides will make the trip, made up of players from the B.C. U-18 and U-17 teams. On the roster is Oak Bay Barbarians standout Jack Nyren, who, like Crossley, is making a return trip to the tournament, which runs Jan. 24-25.
