2015 was a strong year for rugby in Abbotsford and the surrounding area. Hundreds of boys and girls from grades 6-12 were involved in local school rugby programs, as many teams continue to expand and develop their rugby skills.
At the senior high school level, there were 6 boys’ teams competing from Abbotsford, including Robert Bateman, Yale, Abby Sr. and Mouat with Hansen and ATSS competing in the local sevens tourneys. In the Provincial AAA division, Yale won the public school championship, finishing third in the province behind private schools Shawnigan Lake and St. George’s. Yale also won their first ever Fraser Valley Banner. Bateman finished 7th in the provincial tournament. Abby and Mouat laid solid foundation to build their programs throughout the season.
