This past weekend, Richmond Strikers Rugby played in the Rugby Virginia state tournament at River City Sportsplex in Midlothian, VA. Strikers Rugby were represented in seven divisions:
- 3rd & 4th Grade Boys
- 5th & 6th Grade Boys
- 7th & 8th Grade Boys
- High School Junior Boys Varsity
- High School Girls Varsity (combined with Prince William and Vienna)
- High School Boys Varsity (combined with Legion)
- 4 Middle School Girls
The 5th and 6th grade team, the boys junior varsity and the high school girls’ team all took home 2nd place! The high school boys’ varsity team were the plate winners which placed them third in the state while the 7th & 8th grade team were the bowl winners which placed them fifth in the state. The 3rd and 4th grade team just missed some hardware with their 4th place finish. In addition to the successful team efforts the Strikers had this past weekend, one of our middle school girls players took home her second consecutive tournament MVP, Hannah Johnson.
