Four local rugby players at BC Summer Games

Campbell River Athletic Association rugby players Kristine Osachuk, Georgia Bellamy and Nolan Young earned spots on the Zone 6 rugby 7s teams at this week’s BC Summer Games.

Bellamy will play prop and Osachuk will take a place on the wing for the U17 girls team which is coming off of a first place finish at the Victoria Youth 7s tournament held recently at the University of Victoria.

Both players are talented kickers and will be sharing those duties with Bellamy kicking restarts and Osachuk kicking conversions.

Young will be playing prop for the U14 boys team.

The B.C. Summer Games are taking place in Nanaimo and run until Sunday.

The Campbell River Athletic Association’s youth fall season will start in late August with opportunities for boys and girls ages 6-17 to learn and play rugby, compete on the Island, learn from local and National Team coaches through trainings and clinics.
