GRR: KC Jr Blues
Longtime Kansas City Junior Blues Head Coach Eddie Cummings is hanging it up, sort of.
Cummings, who has coached the Junior Blues for 19 years, is stepping back and will see his role taken over by his son, Casey.
"I won't be completely gone," said Cummings. "I will be around to help, but the team is in very good hands."
Woodlands Rugby hosted the Kansas City Jr. Blues and the Mexico City Aztecas this weekend, as two teams going to the National Championships sought some challenging warmup competition.
In the end, both Woodlands and KC won their games against the Aztecas, and Woodlands, ranked #4 by GRR, also defeated #23-ranked Kansas City.
Regis Jesuit defeated Palmer HS in convincing fashion on Wednesday evening 51-19 to improve to 4-0 in the Colorado Interscholastic Rugby Association.
It was a impressive showing by Regis, but Head Coach Anthony Mattacchione said the score somewhat flattered his team. Palmer, he said. ""are a physical team and the wear and tear of 70 minutes showed on both sides."
In one of the five games GRR tagged as crucial to Boys HS National seedings, the Kansas City Jr. Blues defeated St. Louis University High 21-17.
