U14 CHAMPIONS Fraser Valley 2014The Victoria Youth Sevens Tournament took place July 11-12 on campus at the University of Victoria. Several local Abbotsford boys competed in the tournament at various levels. Jason Hignell hoisted the trophy for the BC Elite Seven's Gold team who won the U-18 Elite division while Noah Bain played for BC White U-18. The U-16 Valley East narrowly missed the cup competition on day 1 but won all their day 2 games to take home the plate. Three other Abby boys played for the Island Thunder, and camp team created by Canada player Phil Mack.

The Valley U-14 Boys took over 22 boys who were equally balanced on two teams. Both groups went undefeated on day 1 and played each other in the final to bring home the cup. 

Congratulations to our local sevens players!
