Local Youth to Represent Manitoba at National Event


Two local girls will be among those representing Manitoba on the 2018 U16 Rugby Manitoba Provincial Team at this weekend’s Vancouver Rugby Festival.
Both Jenna McKay, and Maicy Burwash made the cut after only one season of play behind them.
The girls will travel to Vancouver on March 7 where they will compete in a minimum of six games against other Provincial Teams. Semifinal and final games could add to their playing time. As well, they will have the opportunity to gain experience and knowledge by watching National teams battle it out on the field. It is an honour neither are taking lightly.
“I’m so excited to be able to represent my town and Province doing something I really love and enjoy,” said Burwash.
“I’m (also) very exited and can’t wait to play,” added McKay. ‘I’ve had a lot of support from my family and especially my mom for taking me to all my practices.”
