EAST H.S. RUGBY UPCOMING EVENTS
As most of you know, we finished the 2015 season by winning our 5th State Championship .It was a great close victory over Regis that ended with our goal line stand that featured East Rugby discipline and toughness. 
 
We concluded the 2015 Summer Sevens season with winning our pool and a 4th place finish in the Denver Sevens Tournament, which included teams from out of state. Considering the three teams that finished above us were all  all star teams , this was a good showing. We also won the plate division ( 3rd place) in the Rugby Colorado Summer Sevens league.
