High School Boys
TEMPE, AZ – Monday February 3rd 2019 - Eagle Impact Rugby Academy (EIRA), is about to pilot a club venture with Granite Bay Rugby Club in Sacramento, California. The goal is to bring EIRA’s methodology to the club level and provide an environment aligned to best practices under the banner of EIRA Club Sacramento.
The St. Augustine Saints hosted Torrey Pines in a huge SCIRF match this weekend, and it was a tight one, with the Saints holding off TP 19-16.
The Woodlands rugby club out of the Houston area took a trip to New Orleans and faced off with the New Orleans Jesuit Blue Jays.
One more day to go for teams interesting in applying to the Boys HS National Championships.
Details on what that entails are here:
HS Nationals Applications Due Soon!
Over 300 boys HS players were in elite-level winter camps over the Christmas break.
Eagle Impact Rugby Academy had 252 players in camp, while USA Rugby has 82 U18 and Rising Junior All American players in camp at the same time.
That's 334 athletes at elite-level camps at the same time.
Who are they? We can tell you. Look at the lists below:
Rugby Georgia kicked off the Spring 2019 season with a pair of high school boys matches and one U16 match.
Kickoff weekend also saw multiple U14 matches and Rookie Rugby events at the U10 and below age groups.
Los Alamitos continues to make waves in Southern California and could well be on its way to a title in the Southern California Youth Rugby Boys Varsity White Division.
Los Al has doubled its numbers from last year, and that's allowed them to field a 2nd side, even with a large number of underclassmen in the varsity squad.
The Jesuit of New Orleans Blue Jays opened up their 2019 league season with a 36-12 defeat of Brother Martin.
Coming off a loss to the Bayou Hurricanes the week before, Brother Martin was looking to get back on the winning side. But, facing the two-time defending Louisiana state champion Blues Jays made it tough.
The SCIRF goes on as rivals Cathedral and Torrey Pines, two teams less than a mile apart, renewed their rivalry last Saturday.
Cathedral, off to a blistering start, jumped to a quick 12-0 lead thanks to two tries by Miles McCormick. Chris Buonarati converted one of the tries from a difficult angle.
The Phoenix Varsity squad followed up on their impressive December win against Jacksonville Wolverines with a solid 36-0 win over MSIRL champions South Greenville at North Park on Saturday to remain unbeaten.
