GRR: Rugby Virginia
Legion pulled off a bit of a surprise over the weekend, defeating Fort Hunt 29-24 to win the Rugby Virginia state title.
With the 2018 high school season on the horizon, the Fort Hunt Warriors have been preparing for the tough campaign ahead.
While some teams rest and relax in the fall, the Warriors have been training since November. Even though 2017 was the team’s most successful season to date, head coach Dale Roach knows that this team has even more to offer.
Boys HS select teams from Virginia and Maryland met last week on the campus of Mount Saint Mary's in warmup games leading up to the South Regional Cup Tournament.
The Fairfax Police Youth rugby team repeated as Rugby Virginia DII champions this spring, beating Western Loudoun 29-7 in the final.
Fairfax was led by Woodson HS football standout Daniel Trump, who played flanker for the rugby team and was hugely influential on the field.
