GRR: Rugby Virginia

Vienna beat West End in the semifinals and Richmond Strikers in the final.
Vienna took home the Virginia High School Girls Rugby Championship this past weekend, beating TC WIlliams 38-0 in the final.
As the Boys HS Rugby National Championships loom, and the much-anticipated seedings loom even closer (!), here's a look at what happened over the weekend.
Fort Hunt held off Vienna 33-26 in a somewhat surprisingly close game in Rugby Virginia.
Fort Hunt ran out to a 21-0 lead before Vienna finally scored. Even then Fort Hunt replied and led 28-5 at halftime.
But Vienna made a few adjustments, and Fort Hunt suddenly were under pressure.
Virginia rugby is getting going and we're already seeing a few teams come to the fore.
While it's no surprise that Fort Hunt has started strong, it is interesting to see Vienna start to emerge as one of the stronger programs in the area.
