It’s been quite a year for the Staples High School freshman rugby team.
Last week they beat the Greenwich High frosh team — a first for any Wrecker rugby team, at any level. That earned the 9th graders an undefeated season record.
Today Staples played in the state freshman championship game. Once again, they faced Greenwich.
Once again they prevailed — in a 59-14 rout.
It’s the first-ever state rugby championship for the entire Staples rugby program.
Even more remarkable: Many of the frosh never played rugby until this year.
Congratulations, lads (and coaches!).
