Summit High girls rugby rolls on to state, topping Chaparral 76-0

The Tiger girls rugby team kept its winning tradition alive Saturday, topping Chaparral High School 76-0 in the opening round of the playoffs. The team will try to claim its seventh-consecutive state title next Saturday against Fort Collins.

Fort Collins advanced to state with a come-from-behind win over Northside.

“We like where we’re at,” Tigers head coach Karl Barth said after the game. “We’re not planning on changing much.”

Barth said his girls overcame a slow start and made some adjustments to finish strong in the second half.

“They’re really enjoying it,” he said of the team’s new fast-paced offense. “When it’s clicking, it’s fun to watch.”

Senior Morgan Courtney led the way for the Tigers Saturday, scoring on three tries.

“If she was a running back she probably would have had a 250-yard game,” Barth said of her performance.

Becca Rosko, Cassidy Bargell and Angie Ramos each added two additional scores.

Meg Rose and Rayna Macias and Tricia Stasiowski also scored one try each. Natalie Gray added seven conversions.

The Tigers topped Fort Collins 76-0 and 81-0 in the teams’ two previous meetings this season. Fort Collins was also the last team to beat the Tigers, back in the 2007 State Championship.
