Wapiti Seniors Place 2nd at State Championship
Wapiti Seniors (7th & 8th grade side) placed second in the Illinois Youth Rugby Association’s Middle School State Championship in Rockford, on June 1st in Rockford. They fell to Chicago’s KIPP Ascend, a team they had beaten at the iYRA Middle School Fest on May 18th.
The Wapiti Juniors (5th & 6th grade side) had a successful championship weekend as well, as they went undefeated in the tournament. While the junior side tournament includes some of the top teams in the state, no places are awarded at that level of play.
