Bowen to represent BC at rugby festival

Chilliwack's Corben Bowen will play at the University of British Columbia's Wolfson Fields next week.

Chilliwack’s Corben Bowen will represent BC at the National Provincial Festival, a week-long rugby event taking place on the University of British Columbia campus.

Bowen will play for U-14 Team BC in a tournament that runs Aug. 6-11 at the tournament at the Wolfson Fields.

The 14-year-old went to Mt. Slesse middle school last year and hopes to attend GW Graham this fall.

He plays wing and fullback and made Team BC despite missing out on a gauntlet of tryouts. Bowen played for a U-15 regional team, and had one shot to impress the provincial coaches during a seven’s tournament in Victoria.
