GRR: Raptor Rugby Tennessee
Harpeth and the Ravenwood Raptors will meet for the Tennessee Boys HS Final after both won convincingly over the weekend in the semifinals.
The Raptors shut out Christian Brothers 34-0. Harpeth went 14 better, shutting out Barden 48-0.
The Harpeth Harlequins finished up their conference play in Tennessee with a 10-7 defeat of Sumner County and a 27-0 shutout of rivals Ravenwood.
Harpeth and Ravenwood end the regular season #1 and #2 in Middle Tennessee.
Sumner County really pushed Harpeth and also pushed Ravenwood. Their defense is excellent and relentless.
The procedure wasn’t expected to be a big deal - wrestlers and rugby players, and Jesse Phillips was both, get their noses bashed around a bit - but it ended up being a very, very big deal.
The Ravenwood Raptors capped off a 10-1 season, with a 28-17 defeat of the Harpeth Harlequins to take the Tennessee state championship this past weekend.
Ravenwood finished 9-0 in Tennessee, with their only loss being against top-ranked St. Edward of Ohio.
St. Edward left the University of Kentucky High School Showcase 2-0 on the varsity level and 4-0 overall, beating South Doyle and Ravenwood.
St. Ed’s beat South Doyle 55-0 on Saturday, paced by Elijah Warfield's two tries, and their JVs won 53-0 over South Doyle’s Bs. On Sunday, St. Edward’s JVs were victorious again, and then in the varsity game, St. Edward beat Ravenwood 31-3.
