We <3 MadRugby! [Video]

Madison won its first game during the 5th Annual Connecticut High School Rugby Championship this weekend. We lost the second game in the final minutes, but the tourney proves a success, with more than 1,200 attending at Surf Club.

 

Madison hosted the 5th Annual Connecticut High School Rugby Championship this weekend, hosting 26 teams from across the state.

MadRugby won its first game against Fairfield Prep-B, then lost its second match, a close one, against Amity.

Madison Rugby Coach Jay Rubino says the tournament, held this year for the first time at the Surf Club, was a success.

"The final tally for attendees was over 1200 people ... The weather was perfect as many athletes cooled down after their matches with a cool dip in the Sound," he said. "So many coaches, referees, supporters and friends complimented the great venue, food, and services of the Madison U-19 team hosting the event. Hats off to all that made it possible!!"

I went down to watch and had a good time. I only wish I knew the rules! Fun environment all around and friendly competition with good spirits from the teams and fans. Great Job
