GRR: Rugby 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.
It's early days in the Rugby Oregon girls HS competition but already three teams have risen to the top.
Linn Benton is 2-0 after beating Canby 47-12 this past weekend. Grant is 2-0 now after shutting out both North Clackamas and Cleveland. The Lady Barbarians are also 2-0 after taking care of North Clackamas.
