In only her second year of wrestling, Tabitha has won at both O.F.S.A.A. and at the National levels - the two toughest wrestling tournaments in Canada.

A former Stamford Collegiate student, Tabitha is a national champion in two sports - wrestling and rugby. She has won three National Rugby Championships: in 2004, she won the Under-17 National Rugby Championship and in both 2005 and 2006, the Under-19 National Rugby Championships.

Tabitha notes that her signature wrestling move, a double leg attack, is similar to the method she uses to make tackles on a rugby pitch. Her skills have led her to play on five different rugby teams: Stamford Collegiate, St. Catharines Tigers’ Women’s Rugby Club Team, the Under-17 Ontario Team, the Under-19 Ontario Team, and the Canadian Under-19 Team….
