Life University center Harley Wheeler, newly-minted D1A champion, has won the Rudy Scholz Award as the top men’s college player of 2018-19.
Dartmouth College center Emily Henrich, already capped by the USA as a freshman, has won the MA Sorensen Award as the top women’s college player of 2018-19.
Henrich, who earned her first USA cap in November against New Zealand, has entered college rugby and not missed a step after being a high school standout for Orchard Park in New York, and with the select touring side Atlantis.
Still unbeaten in the SCIRF, St. Augustine has emerged as a powerhouse single-school program.
One of the players leading the way is Mike Cross, and he is our Player Of The Month for January, 2019.
(Editor's note, yes, it's not been January for two weeks, sorry, we're late with this one but will be more prompt in the future.)

It's College Rugby Awards time!
It's easy to miss the fact that in their own 7s tournament last week, Kutztown not only won, they beat AIC 33-12.
Kutztown, it seems, might be poised to make some noise this spring, and they are big, powerful, skilled, and experienced. KU has a lot of talent, and one you might want to keep an eye on is freshman Dmontae Noble.
Here's a look at the HS Boys rugby players who made an impact over the last couple of weeks.
Steve Rohde, St. Thomas Aquinas (Kan.)
The St. Thomas Aquinas No. 8 was a powerful presence offensively and defensively when Aquinas beat rivals KC Jr. Blues, and also in a good showing at the Jesuit Classic.
We have two weeks of action for our latest Gamebreakers. Here's who impressed:
Nathaniel Turak, Rochambeau Roosters
Turak's goalkicking was the difference, as his team and the Maryland Exiles scored six tries each. By converting five of six tries, Turak helped the Roosters to a 40-34 victory.
