WVFHC remembers Megan Scraper
1989 to 2018
West Vancouver Field Hockey Club are deeply saddened to learn of the untimely death of Megan Scraper.
Megan Scraper's field hockey career started with the WVFHC U10 Angels in 1999. Megan was a bubbly and super enthusiastic young athlete with masses of curly hair. She became an excellent hockey player, converting hard work and athleticism into a university career at both Kent State and Western University, with many achievements along the way. She played on regional and provincial teamsand when she was in Grade 10 she was selected to the Senior Team at West Vancouver Secondary School which went on to win their first Provincial Championship.
Megan never quit. When she broke her arm as a young girl, we kitted her up with a special brace (which included oven mitts) and she played goalie for a season. She was very competitive and enjoyed our end-of-practice sprints, determined to beat the coach (which she finally did). She never looked back.
After university graduation she played for the WVFHC Premier women's team for a short while and then embarked on a new career.
The Scraper family contributed greatly to WVFHC during both Megan's and younger sister Kim's time with the club and our hearts go out to them.
The WVFHC family extends deepest sympathies to Megan's family, including Kim, Autumn and Gord.
In remembrance of Megan, the club held a 1 minute silence at the Canada-China game at Rutledge tonight.
There will be a remembrance service on 19 July at 5pm:
Christ the Redeemer, Keith Road, 1 block east of Taylor Way
Celebration of Life in the gym afterwards
