GRR: Tennessee HS Rugby
After having defeated all comers in the fall of 2020 with a perfect record in 7s and garnering the Olympic 7's Tennessee State Championship title, the Lady Raptors knew that 15s would be a much tougher hill to climb in the spring of 2021.
The teams from Middle and East Tennessee were packed with athletes who loved to hit, drive forward, and run like the wind.
Harlequin Rugby defeated Germantown 30-22 to win the Tennessee Rugby HS Boys final.
Here's a look at what happened in the Boys High School rugby scene around the country.
We refer to the team's ranking from last week when appropriate. If we say S14, that means a School team ranked 14 among School teams. A ranking of C19 would be the #19 team in the HS Club rankings.
Rugby Oklahoma’s Bixby Rugby produced some notable results in a small tournament in Germantown, Tenn. over the weekend.
Bixby defeated Christian Brothers HS out of the Memphis area 41-19 and Father Ryan out of the Nashville area 21-7.
