Last weekend, Quest participated in its second ever Rugby 7’s tournament hosted at Simon Fraser University in Barnaby. It was a cold, foggy Saturday as Quest’s fledgling team squared off against five other universities. This tournament is the second of three tournaments held this year as part of a new Rugby 7’s league, formed just this year.
Quest fielded a team of 11, and played well against teams such as UBCO, SFU, UVIC, Douglas, and Camosun. The field was incredibly foggy, at times you couldn’t even see the other side of the pitch. Quest played 5 games, and though we lost the team played well. There were several amazing tackles, several tries, several close games and by the end of the day everyone went home satisfied. It has been amazing to watch the team go from an intramural team playing against itself to playing and competing against other University teams, and I am excited to see what the future brings for Quest’s Rugby 7’s team.
