The Titanium Senior C Women dragon boat squad picked up gold at the BC Seniors Games last Friday, Aug. 28.

The team, which consists of six women from Abbotsford, will be competing in the World Club Crew Championships in Adelaide, Australia in Spring 2016.

The Abbotsford team members are Karen Baillie, Kathy Heidebrecht, Helen Leusink, Ingrid Rennie, Connie Thompson and Anne Vander Laan.
