Vegas, baby, Vegas!
Langley’s Jordyn Myers received the call to play for BC Rugby’s Elite Youth Sevens girls’ U18 squad over the weekend.
The team took part in the Las Vegas Invitational , one of the largest Rugby Sevens tournaments in North America.
The competition ran March 1 to 3.
The B.C. team went 3-0 during pool play in the girls high school elite 7s division, defeating Atavus 17-5, the Lions 26-0 and Rocky Mountain 24-10.
The team then won their quarter-final and semifinal games, decisively, beating USA South 38-7 and Rugby Oregon 31-0.
But B.C. would fall short in the gold-medal game, losing 12-5 to Atlantis.
Myers plays for the Abbotsford Rugby Club and is in Grade 12 at Walnut Grove Secondary.
