GRR: Kansas Youth Rugby
The Kingfishers rugby team is a relatively new one in the game and has already made a bit of a splash.
It was all set up beautifully for St Thomas Aquinas this season—the Overland Park, Kan. private school has already logged wins against four ranked teams, and was set to go on tour; then it all ended.
St. Thomas Aquinas is flying high after this weekend's Lindenwood Tournament, as the STA varsity beat both Single-School #7 Penn HS and HS Club #11 Germantown.
Saint Thomas Aquinas won its 9th consecutive Kansas state championships Saturday, defeating the Kansas City Cougars 57-12 in the final.
STA continues to play well and show depth, with their JV team winning the Tier 3 title with wins over Garden City and Saint James Academy.
St. Thomas Aquinas is hosting the 2016 Heart of America Classic this weekend, with 12 well-regarded HS teams from around the country.
Aquinas is on a role, having shown well at tournaments in Oklahoma and Lindenwood University, and having beaten their arch rivals, KC Jr. Blues, in a recent game.
Aquinas, along with the Blues, will field two teams in the HOA.
