Berkelaar will play for the Panthers in 2018–2019

John LaBoyne, coach of UPEI’s Women’s Rugby team, is pleased to announce Katlyn Berkelaar has committed to the Panthers for the 2018–2019 season.

Berkelaar is a lock player from Williams Lake, British Columbia where she played for the Lake City Secondary School Falcons in both 7s and 15s rugby. Berkelaar won a silver medal this year at the BC Provincial Regional Championships, playing for the Thompson Okanagan Rugby Alliance.

“Katlyn has a solid background foundation and is spending the summer developing her strength and fitness in preparation for her debut with the Panthers,” said LaBoyne.

“I’m really looking forward to attending UPEI and playing rugby for the Panthers,” said Berkelaar. “It will be a change for me, coming from a small town in British Columbia. This is a big step towards achieving more goals and making new friends.”

Berkelaar has been admitted to the Faculty of Arts.

Go Panthers Go!
