High School Girls
This was supposed to be a rebuilding year for Armstrong girls in Minnesota.
The four-time state champions had graduated a huge part of their 2013 team, and with weather playing havoc with their early schedule, Head Coach Jimmy Hanson decided to pull back, not go to the Midwest or NIT tournaments, and concentrate on competing at the state level.
Rugby Indiana has named its Girls All-State team.This is the pool of players that will make up the Rugby Indiana team to play in the Midwest All-Star Challenge in Elkhart, Ind. June 14.
Rugby Indiana will field a girls Varsity and JV team in the tournament.
In addition, they will field a girls 7th-8th-grade team, which will match up against Illinois.
Does anyone like to finish 2nd? Certainly it's no fun, but the Sacramento Amazons have plenty to be proud of.
The big, powerful Amazons team did indeed lose to Fallbrook in the NIT final, but they weren't blown out (most Fallbrook opponents were), and they won an imposing Northern California league.
