NPSS rugby teams finish second and fifth at Grande Prairie Sevens tournament

The North Peace Secondary School rugby team, The Grizzlies, played in the Grande Prairie 7s Tournament on Friday, April 5, 2019. Excellent efforts were seen by all returning players, and all new players got their first exposure to competitive play.

NPSS put two teams in the tournament and placed second and fifth overall. In the final match against St. Josephs of Grande Prairie, though the lads took an early lead, they were unable to maintain ball control and were eventually outscored by their season rivals.

Now the boys look to further develop as we prepare for their upcoming season. The Grizzlies will rematch St Joseph High School on April 24 - this time playing the Rugby Union style, which is played with 15 players. With the fresh taste of competition, the team looks forward to a quick return to training with newfound energy and a better understanding and respect for the game.
