CSS Rubgy Team Off To A Good Start

Mott Haven Education Campus- Bronx, NY On a sunny and humid day in the Bronx, our Y's SONYC Columbia Secondary School Pride Middle School boys and girls rugby teams competed and took away some hardware. Running their new lead, jet-lead and jockey offense, they scorched numerous defenses en route to a banner day!
The boys team competed in the Plate Final and took home the Championship Trophy, which will join the others in the trophy case. Every single player from starters to impact subs came into the game, contributed everything they have in order to come away with the championship.
Our girls played extremely well all day long and were put into the semifinals match before bowing out to another well deserving team. Our lady lions went toe to toe with every team they faced and have a lot of positives to build upon going forward. 

Man/Women  of the Match Awards:
Boys: Brenton Collins & Gus Muamba 
Girls: Samantha McGann & Sunshine Robinson
