The Blues finished their 2013 High School Rugby season yesterday 5/18/13, with a “Plate Chamionship Victory”, in the State Tournament. It was a very hard fought overtime win (21-19) against a very tough opponent “The Valley Rams”. The Rams had given the Blues one of their 3 losses on the season in an earlier match 38-13, so it was sweet revenge. The Blues ended their season with a 7-3 record and a “Plate Chamionship”! Thank you to all our supporters for helping to make our season a success!
