1979-1983 NorKam Saints Rugby Team
Year of Induction: 2005
The Norkam Saints’ rugby program began a remarkable run by finishing 5th provincially in the 1979 season. It set the stage for an unprecedented four straight appearances in the BC finals from 1980—83. The streak culminated in a provincial high school rugby title in the 1983 season. Coached by Alf Konrad and Brian Peters, the team went 29 & 1 in its championship season holding opponents to 10 points or less, 27 times. The Saints outscored opponents 103-26 in winning all five games enroute to the BC High School title. Many of the graduates went on to make major contributions to the future success of the Kamloops Rugby Club in the 1980’s and 1990’s. The group includes Kevin Smith, Darcy Scallon, Marc Anderson, Jamie Chretien, Rene Pellerin, Blaine Moen along with Mike and Andy Seymour, and others.
