Even though Stettler Rugby Wildcats only started three years ago they’re on a winning streak.
The Wildcats went undefeated in their regular season over Wetaskiwin, Lacombe, St. Joseph’s in Red Deer, Rocky and Olds.
“We have amazing leadership on our team, a sheer determination to never back down or quit and we have a group of young women that have come together as a family and support each other at all times,” said coach Megan Weir.
The Wildcats placed first recently in the Red Deer Falcon Classic and second in the Vulcan tournament.
They defeated Rocky May 28 with a score of 51-12 and Rimbey on May 30 to win the chance to go to provincials in Calgary June 8-9.
The Wildcats consists of 32 athletes who attend Wm. E. Hay Stettler Campus. The captains are Emily Brown, Rachael Deaver and Tianna Kirtley.
“We have a team of elite athletes who are amazing leaders, fantastic students and great human beings,” said Weir.
“They have worked tremendously hard to get to this point and I am so proud of what they have accomplished in just three seasons of having a program. Josh Elliott started the program three years ago and the girls have surpassed every goal we set for them. They are a very talented group of women.”
