Heading in as the No. 3 ranked ‘AA’ team in the province, the Lake City Falcons girls rugby team will hit the pitch this weekend at the University of British Columbia for the B.C. High School Girls Rugby Championships.

Lake City opened its tournament Thursday versus Houston and, depending on the outcome, was seeded accordingly in advancing in the tournament.

The Falcons are coming off a bronze-medal finish at the provincial rugby sevens championships held on Vancouver Island in April and will now be looking to solidify their provincial standing in the 15-a-side game.

The Falcons are matched up with Brentwood College (No. 1), Abbotsford (No. 2), Windsor (No. 4), Shawnigan (No. 5), Houston (No. 6), NorKam (No. 7) and Heritage Park (No. 8).

At 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 23, the tournament final will take centre stage.
