Luticia (Tish) Hill & Brian Huse
Tish is originally from Hudson, Quebec and moved out west in the early ‘80s. Brian originates from Boston, but was raised in Seattle. They met at a sailing regatta in the States and lived in Seattle until a move to Victoria in 2006. For Tish it was a return to Victoria, after graduating from UVic in the early ‘90’s.
Tish and Brian were introduced to rugby through daughter Chloe (15) when she signed up for CW, after watching the Americas Rugby Championships (Chloe was 11 at the time). Since then, Tish and Brian have had a “baptism by fire” in women’s rugby through their support of Chloe in her rugby exploits at CW, Tide at PRC’s, BC 7’s and most recently BC U16 15’s, at the CRC’s in Calgary.
Although not (..yet!?) rugby players themselves, both Brian and Tish are active athletes in other sports. Tish plays field hockey for Oak Bay Ladies (Go Devils!) and the Ancient Mariners Touring team. She is also an active rower with the Gorge Narrows Masters. Brian is a “hired gun” competitive sailor, with top finished in multiple international events, to his credit. The Hill-Huse clan also cruises the Islands closer to home, on their C&C 40 sailboat. When not competing in their various sports, Tish is a consultant in Digital Marketing and eCommerce and Brian is a yacht broker at Raven Marine in Sidney.
