GRR: Rugby Indiana
Rugby Indiana has announced its first nominees to its Hall of Fame.
Carmel HS started off strong in Rugby Indiana’s fall season, and newcomer Cassidy Phillips has thrown herself into this new challenge and quickly become a big part of he team’s success.
Despite being quite new to the sport, Phillips has emerged as a co-captain and the team’s scrumhalf, a remarkable rise in such a short time.
Rugby Indiana has kicked off its series of touch rugby tournaments and the response has been very positive.
On a day that started cold and wet and ended with a little fall sunshine, high school players played touch rugby league—no tackles, no mauls, no scrums, but plenty of passing and running—and reacquainted student-athletes with the sport.
Rugby Indiana held an outreach and fundraising event this past weekend at the Hickory Hall Polo Club in Indianapolis.
That, perhaps is what made this event relatively unique—unless they are sharing playing space, you don't think of rugby and polo mixing. But Executive Director Wayne Eells wanted to shake things up.
As the trend of high school rugby teams getting a feeder system or being a private school to increase their ability to gain the best players, it can be easy to overlook that there are small school club teams that only have a high school side.
