High school girls to debut at state

Glendale girls high school rugbyThe Glendale girls high school rugby team make their first championship appearance on Saturday in the stadium at Infinity Park, where the Rugby Colorado Girls High School Championships will take place. The game will begin at 2 p.m. against the no. 2-seeded team, Highlands Ranch.

The Glendale Raptors are currently 6-0 against Summit JV (2-4), Thunderhawks (0-6) and Ranch (4-2.)

Head Coach Robin Roberts is looking for the players to play like they did in their last league match against Summit JV.

“They played the best game of the season against Summit,” Roberts said. “Every player made a difference on the field and that’s how we want them to play on Saturday.”

This will be the final match for seniors Rachel Oberly (Cherry Creek High School), Courtney Racine (Thomas Jefferson), Madison Sample-Reif (Littleton) and team captain Shaelan Tracy (South). Co-captains Oberly and Racine will both receive All-State recognition, along with teammates Ajahne Johnson (senior, East) and Grace Chao (sophomore, Kent). Racine was voted the Division II Player of the Year. Awards will be given out after the DII championship match.

In the 2012 season, Division II teams played 7s, the version of rugby that will be in the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in 2016. Four teams competed in the Division II league.

Glendale’s Youth Rugby Coordinator and Girls High School Coach Jenna Anderson believes the switch from 15s to 7s has improved the team’s skills.

“The girls are moving the ball down the field really well and scoring a lot of points,” Anderson said. “They’re fitter than we’ve ever seen them and each girl has had a spectacular season. Each player should be proud of themselves as they all contributed to this season’s amazing record.”

In their last match this Saturday, Nov. 3, the Glendale girls high school rugby team will compete for their first state championship in the stadium at Infinity Park at 2 p.m.
