HS Nationals News
The 2015 Boys High School Rugby National Championship will be held on May 14-16, 2015.
The location of the 2015 tournament will be selected in the coming weeks, although the smart money is on an East Coast location. It has been confirmed that Elkart, Ind., which hosted the tournament the last two years, will not host in 2015.
In the last three years the Cathedral Royal Irish have made the NIT final three times, winning twice.
At the beginning of the 2014 high school season, the Gonzaga coaching staff decided to give the season a theme, emulating a habit of the successful Canterbury Crusaders team in New Zealand, and the coaches chose the conguering of Mt. Everest by Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay in 1953.
