Rugby takes conference title

The varsity girls rugby won the Classic Five conference title Saturday with a 59-0 victory over Muskego.

Senior Cpt. Lizzy Jacobson scored twice and kicked a conversion.  Junior Cpt. Ellie Metz scored three tries, to stay two ahead of her twin Fletcher, who caught a 17-yard touchdown pass in the football game Friday night.   Junior Katie McGinn and sophomore Niina Sjogren both scored twice, and even exchange student Ieva Neimantate, from Lithuania, got in on the action, scoring her first try and notching an assist.

Next up for the Crusaders is an exhibition Olympic Rugby match Friday at halftime of the varsity football game.  Rugby parents and players will be around to answer questions before, during, and after.

The girls playoff game takes place Saturday Oct 18th at Minooka Park, against Brookfield at 10am.
