GRR: Rugby Oregon
Rugby Oregon has canceled its fall HS 7s season.
In a post on Facebook today, Rugby Oregon Executive Director Laci Betts said there will be no fall high school 7s in Oregon.
Oregon HS sports will start late this fall, with no sport starting until the end of September.
But perhaps more significant, the football season has been delayed indefinitely.
After years of Union dominating the Oregon single-school picture, there's a new champion in town, as the Portland Pumas defeated Newberg 34-10 in this past weekend's final to take the state championship.
Newberg defeated Union 24-14 May 13 to make the final, while Portland defeated Battle Ground 31-10.
What's happening around the country in Boys HS Rugby? Time for a nationwide rundown:
Two of the best single-school high school teams in Oregon met up this weekend, with defending champs Union holding off Newberg 32-31.
While it was a bit of a relief for Union to pull out the victory, it wasn't easy, and the result also shows that Newberg is a team to watch.
