UPEI Women’s Rugby recruits Brinten Comeau

John LaBoyne, coach of the UPEI Women's Rugby team, is announcing a new recruit from Hammond Plains, Nova Scotia. Brinten Comeau is a quality, all-around player who has committed to playing for the Panthers for the 2018-2019 season.

"I am pleased Brinten has chosen UPEI for her education and to play rugby for the Panthers," said LaBoyne. "She is a quality young woman who will enhance both the university and our rugby program. Both James Voye and I are looking forward to working with her. Brinten has had experience playing overseas on a recent rugby tour to Ireland. We feel that experience will serve her well on her next challenge of playing in the AUS with the UPEI Panthers Women's Rugby Team."

Comeau is already an accomplished player, having captained the Charles P. Allen High School team for two years and played on the Nova Scotia Keltics U17 national team, the U18 Ireland Tour Team, and the Nova Scotia Keltics High-Performance Academy.

"I'm looking forward to attending UPEI in the fall with its beautiful campus and small classes," said Comeau. "At UPEI I can focus on my academic and athletic goals. I look forward to playing with new people and being able to focus on furthering my rugby skills at such a high level of play."

Comeau has been accepted to study sociology in UPEI's Faculty of Arts.

Go Panthers Go!
