This past Memorial Day Weekend the best young men and women in the state of Illinois gathered to battle for the title of State Champion. Morton West High School in Berwyn, Illinois, hosted this year’s games. Matches throughout the day were fierce in competition and showed tremendous athleticism. Some games were close until the final minutes, others were major upsets.
Indiana University won the team's second-straight Big Ten Universities Conference title, hammering Ohio State University 72-19 Saturday in the championship game.
Rugby Illinois is just barely underway and already there are indications of a possible changing of the guard.
The Illinois conference is a hybrid league, mixing DI and DII women’s colleges together. The season-openers saw two cross-divisional matches occur, and the DI teams won both.
