Future of Summit rugby looks bright

The Summit High JV girls’ rugby team had its chance to shine Wednesday, taking on Glendale’s varsity team. The young squad won 31-10, which is a good harbinger for future varsity teams.

“The game went really well,” head coach Ashley Good-Smith said. “Our girls did really well regrouping, playing solid defense. They definitely were fairly outsized, but they worked really well to get the ball wide and use their speed on the wings.”

Glendale is a developing team so it was good competition for the Summit JV girls, who mostly scrimmage against themselves throughout the season.

“It was a really good game for them to play for our future varsity players,” Good-Smith said. “Our forwards were working on their scrums. That was really good. We were working on our rucking, which was a lot better. The girls were also working on offensive patterns.”

But she said the biggest thing they improved on was tackling.

The JV team is 2-0 on the season after a win a Columbine-Chatfield earlier in the year.
