The Provincial Pathway: Train 2 Train Girls Athlete Features  T2TGirls

On the U15 Girls side, we've had the opportunity to highlight two of the U15 BC Girls Rams athletes, Savina Purewal and Laine Delmotte.

The 14 year-old India Club member was invited to the Junior Development Squad Camp following last year's National Championships.
