Three former members of the St. Peter Knights high school rugby program and one current member recently won gold at the National Rugby Festival in Vancouver.

Jeremy Salgo, John Shaw, James Shaw and Catherine Belanger all helped lead their respective provincial teams to national titles during the three day tournament earlier this month.

Salgo scored a try for the U18 Ontario Jr. Blues 3 team which went 5-0 in winning the Tier 2 championship, while John Shaw scored a pair of tries for the U18 Jr. Blues 1 team which also went 5-0 in winning the Tier 1 title.

Shaw's younger brother James played on the U16 Ontario Jr. Blues 2 squad which went 4-1 in winning the U16 Tier 1 championship and Belanger scored a pair of tries for the U18 Ontario Jr. Storm which went undefeated in five games to win the U18 Tier 1 title.

Salgo, Belanger and John Shaw are all former members of the St. Peter Knights. Salgo will be suiting up for the Algonquin Thunder this fall while Shaw will be attending Carleton Univeristy and Belanger will be playing varsity rugby at York University in Toronto.
