Rocky Mountain Girls Could Pull A Double

Rocky Mountain HS has a shot at two state titles, one at the JV level and one at the Varsity level in Rugby Idaho.

Already the team has emerged as a contender, ending the regular Fall 7s girls season tied with Mountain View atop both standings. The tiebreaker is head-to-head competition, which Rocky Mountain wins in JV and loses in Varsity. But that all just leads to the seedings, and we'll likely see these teams meet again in the playoffs. 

For Head Coach Jeff Harward it has been a fairly gratifying season, not only because student-athletes have been able to play, but because of the numbers the team showed (two JV squads plus a deep Varsity team), and the overall results (23-12-1 among the three teams).

"Everybody played well and you can see how everyone was involved in scoring tries and making tries happen," said Harward. "We've have some really tight games and that's good. It's more fun to watch good rugby than it is to see your team blow someone out. For rugby to be successful we need good competition, and we've had that."

Lucy Christensen has emerged as a talent. The JV flyhalf leads the league in points, and earned some time on the Varsity team despite being a freshman. She has a good eye for space and the ability to set up her teammates.

Kennedy Pabst, who were profiled earlier this fall, continues to be a force and continues to improve on a very strong start. Her All-State teammate Teuila Nawahine is second in the league with 13 tries, more than one a game, behind only Meridian's Nesi Tuitama.

But Haward said it continues to be a team effort, and it will need to be as the playoffs loom.
