GRR: La Jolla
Southern California's Boys HS Clubs got back into preseason action this past weekend, with the South OC Raptors and Thunder Rugby coming out victories, albeit in two very different ways.
It was a runaway for Thunder against La Jolla, with Thunder winning 84-13.
In the second week of Southern California preseason games, the South Orange County Raptors pulled off a mild upset, beating La Jolla 36-26.
Marcus Nguyen scored three tries in the win with Asher Hannon added 11 points with a try and three conversions. Addison Barrette and Mike Lewis added tries for the Raptors.
Annual Southern California single-school power La Jolla has a new coaching staff.
Longtime Head Coach Bill Leversee is stepping down, and the former Eagle has enjoyed a long period of success. He will be replaced by Ethan Willis and Ian Denham, two teammates from the OMBAC rugby club who were previously coaching at St. Augustine.
