A team made up of girls from Prince Rupert and Vanderhoof, or Prince Hoof as they called themselves, won a silver medal at the Prince George Invitational Girls 7s Tournament.

Robyn Grant, Hannah Scherr, Kennedy Weir and Jordan Weir were the Rupert representatives. The team won four of the five games, losing only the championship game.

They beat Duchess Park 42-7, then shut out College Heights in back-to-back games 30-0 and 52-0. In the semi-final, the girls beat Lake City 37-0 but ultimately fell to Houston 20-5.

Maggie Lazar-Emerson, a Rupert junior rugby player, played with the Nechako Valley junior team and came on as an injury reserve in the senior final.

Around 100 girls participated in the weekend, made up of seven different teams.
