The Tennessee Rugby Academy captured the Tennessee State High School Bowl Championship last Saturday with a 29-15 victory over the Sumner County All Blacks. Academy's Alex Plese earned Most Valuable Player honors in the victory.
The Academy reached the final with a 46-24 semi-final victory over Father Ryan High School played on May 04 at the Tennessee Rugby Park.
The victory on Saturday caps a very successful first year for the high school academy. Summer training sessions are underway and the academy is always looking for new student athletes ready to give rugby a try.
Congratulations to all of our seniors!
