GRR: Rugby Ohio
While there are several high school rugby teams playing a little on the down-low, there are leagues and tours that have been approved by governing bodies, and teams that have secured their own insurance to get the job done.
Archbishop Moeller HS in Ohio is hosting a season warmup tournament for the second year in a row and with rugby being so rare for the last 12 months it's a welcome opener for teams from three states.
HS rugby teams in Ohio have been able to get on the field a little for some 7s.
This past spring, Saint Ignatius and Saint Edward did not play each other for the Rugby Ohio state championship; it took a pandemic shutdown of the high school rugby season to prevent these two heated rivals from meeting.
Rugby Ohio completed its fall 7s series with four separate brackets this past weekend.
According to Rugby Ohio, 530 athletes participated in the Fall 7s season over four weeks, playing in Social and Competitive brackets.
Matches were played on Sundays, with teams getting in a handful of games and that was it. This past weekend was the championship event.
