The Fairfield Rugby Club didn’t really know what to expect in the Rugby Connecticut HS club final June 13 - after a 5-2 regular season they knew they could be beaten, and their opposition, Cheshire, was undefeated.
Greenwich High School won their 8th straight Connecticut single-school state championship Thursday with an impressive 70-10 defeat of Fairfield Prep.
Greenwich takes on Fairfield Prep Thursday evening for the Connecticut single-school boys state championship in a game where the #8-ranked Greenwich team has to be heavily favored.
Fairfield has had their moments, and Greenwich Head Coach Joe Kelly said he expects the game to be a difficult one.
The Connecticut girls high school league is an interesting one. The state has three active 15s teams, and thus, the coaches and players are all very familiar with each other. They’re also very supportive. Winning the state championship is a big deal – especially now that Simsbury and Cheshire have two apiece – but so is sustaining the health of all three clubs.
