High School Boys
Here's the latest from the Southern California Boys Varsity White.
Warren defeated California HS 52-12 to improve to 2-1 (1-1 in conference play). But Wilson is the team that is in control of the LA Division, holding off Saint Anthony’s 32-22 to improve to 2-0.
A high school select-side 15s tournament independent of the USA Rugby RCT system is going to be held this coming June.
Set up and run by Eagle Impact Rugby Academy, but open to all select-sides (pending acceptance of an application), the EIRA National Invitation All Star Tournament will be held June 20-21 at the Moose Rugby Grounds in Elkhart, Ind.
In something of a barnburner in Southern California high school action, Wilson High School held off a determined and very skilled Saint Anthony's HS 32-22 Friday night.
Both teams are under the umbrella of the Belmont Shore Rugby Club, and will forward players to the Belmont Shore HS Club, and so this game showed that Belmont Shore will likely be formidable later this spring.
Twenty-four teams are expected to suit up this weekend in the Southern California Boys Varsity White league, and this is really the first big weekend of action.
After firing one last salvo about the high school game, USA Rugby's VP of Rugby Operations, Kurt Weaver, is apparently leaving the organization.
In a Facebook post today, Weaver said:
"Today is my last day with USA Rugby, it's been a true privilege to serve the game with the national organization. Now on to the next project!"
