2018 Message from the President

What an exciting adventure this past off-season has been. In preparation for the summer 2018 regular club season we have seen a surge of membership and support for our club and things are only set to get better as we look towards our season kickoff on Friday, May 25th. This year we are excited to announce our club will be supporting roughly sixty (60) men’s level athletes who will compete in two divisions of club rugby this year.

Our first division men look tough and ready to rumble with seasoned veterans Callum Mills and (now Vice President) Terry Selinger matching with our young star players Dylan Turner, Deano Mason, and Gaige Levesque. This powerful squad will be even more prepared to face off the season with notable additions Morgan Smerek, Hayden Markwart, and Marcus Kuling playing Centres, Hooker, and Openside Flank respectively. Head Coach Greg Toews is “over the moon” at the amount of talent he is going to be working with this year and expects an incredibly successful season from our first XV’s side.

Not to be out-done, our brand new second division roster is nothing short of exciting to see either. Notable Highlander Alumni Mischa Bosovich, Josh Howe, and Jaime Sinclair have all agreed to take part in the kickoff of this seconds team. They will be joining a roster of young up-and-coming talent who are all hungry to learn from these Highlanders greats and earn their spots on the first XV.

Working on such a successful off-season was an amazingly talented board including the following volunteers:

Nathan Sgrazzutti – President
Terry Selinger – Vice President
Tim Kent – Treasurer
Levi Moore – Secretary
Greg Toews – Head Coach
Pat Wight – Assistant Coach
Andrew Howden – Captain
Jackson Lewchuk – Member at Large
Kevin Riddell – Member at Large
Jamie Krienke – Member at Large
Dylan Turner – Member at Large
Marcus Kuling – Member at Large
Aaron Hooke – Member at Large
Aidan Hooke – Member at Large

These volunteer athletes have helped the Highlanders see one of their most successful jersey-sponsorship drives ever allowing them to purchase new jerseys for a Highlanders 7’s program, Highlanders first division, and three (3) Highlanders high school teams! We are incredibly thankful for our many sponsors and hope to do as much as we can to make them feel appreciated during the season.

I am looking forward to an incredibly successful season this year full of tours, thrilling matches, and great club events. Go Highlanders!

Nathan Sgrazzutti – President
