Rugby Virginia State Championship Recap

Rugby Virginia State Championship Recap

This past weekend wrapped up the summer rugby season with the state tackle tournament on Saturday and the tag tournament on Sunday in Alexandria, VA. The Strikers had a great showing with all teams placing in the top 3 in their age group in the state! 

Congratulations to Richmond Strikers Rugby 1st and 2nd grade tag team and JV Boys tackle team for taking home 2nd in the state! In addition, the 7th and 8th grade tackle team came in third. We also had players represented on two motley teams: the 5th & 6th grade tackle team came in 1st and the Varsity Boys tackle came in 3rd. 

Rugby will not get back into full swing until January, but stay tuned for an announcement for rugby clinics this fall! The Strikers had an excellent 2019 campaign and look forward to getting back to work for the 2020 season to make the program better than ever!
