SHS rugby shuts down Chaparral, 85-0

Special to the Daily/Amy Mastin

Summit High’s rugby team traveled to Chaparral High School on the Front Range to shut it down in an 85-0 victory.

“It was a good game and we worked on the things we wanted to work on,” senior team captain Katy Peoples said. “It’s always a challenge to adapt to a new team because every team plays differently. We challenge ourselves to play at a high level. It’s also a challenge to play good rugby and maintain good sportsmanship.”

Peoples said many of the younger players like Becca Rosco were able to get out on the field during the varsity game.

Scoring tries for the Tigers were Rosco and Peoples, sophomores Morgan Courtney, Kalee Hollingsworth and Angie Ramos; juniors Maddie Hunt-Snyder and Lily Weldon; and seniors Chelsea Christianson, Vollya Sergeeva, Kellie Cochran and Hailey Wyatt. Courtney and Nicole Chandler also made a few conversions each.
