GRR: Rugby Connecticut
The Northeast RCT wrapped up last weekend in Springfield, MA with Connecticut taking the Boys Tier 1 title.
The tournament was not heavily attended and even the host team, Massachusetts, struggled, with numbers.
Connecticut started strong on Saturday, beating Western NY 77-0, and WNY also struggled (although not as much) against Pennsylvania.
After taking 3rd place in Tier 2 at the Boys High School Nationals tournament in Salt Lake City, Utah, Aspetuck Valley Rugby Club defeated Simsbury HS and Greenwich HS to win the Connecticut State Championships.
The final, 20-12 over Greenwich, was considered something of an upset, as Greenwich has generally dominated the Nutmeg State in HS rugby for years.
Aspetuck defeated in-state rival Simsbury 33-7 in D1 Rugby Connecticut action.
The HS All_Star season finishes up this weekend, but already we have a good idea of which teams have been especially strong.
