Our First High School Season

And so our first high school season ends, with both the boys and girls making the state championship semi-finals. I hope no one is upset or angry about this performance; it is truly outstanding. Winning records are always something to be proud of, and winning records that propel you into the top level of the playoffs are even better. For two teams in their very first year of competition. Again, this is a fantastic achievement.

Thank you, players, for your dedication and your discipline, and for your enthusiasm in training and in the matches. Thank you for your bumps, bruises, and scrapes, and for a few of you, the season-ending injuries. We are looking forward to having you back with us next spring.

Thank you, parents, for supporting your rugby players so well. Thank you for supporting our home-game socials, and for providing rides to away matches. Thank you for becoming Fort Hunt Rugby parents.

We are working on plans for a combined boys/girls end of season party, with details out by the end of the week, hopefully.

There are a few loose ends, with a few boys players needing to pay for kit bags, and for shorts/socks. Please step forward and make this happen.

And summer rugby is fully underway now, with training begun and matches to start on 18 June. Go to our website and sign on up.
