He graduated from the beautiful Vancouver Island school, Brentwood Secondary College, where he starred on that school’s powerhouse rugby team.

Shaira Venegas has been a part of the Heat rugby program for all fours years she has been attending UBCO. Choosing to attend UBC’s Okanagan campus and enrolling in the human kinetics program in Kelowna, the Elgin Park grad had her biggest moment on the pitch for the Heat in the last match played this spring.

To lock in the Heat’s first win (19-12) in the Canada West Rugby 7s series, Shaira scored the match-winning try and kicked the convert against UFV.  

The fourth-year student has found a home in Kelowna, and that has played a big part in her response to 'Why UBCO?'. 

"UBCO allowed me to continue playing the sport I love surrounded by a beautiful campus. The friends I've made here really make me feel like I'm part of a close-knit community."
