Hermits Rugby Team Participates in National Collegiate Rugby Tournament

Posted June 14th, 2015

Over the last weekend of May, Hermit Pride hit PPL Park in Chester, Pennsylvania for the Collegiate Rugby Championship. 48 high school teams competed over three days of the event, which was carried live by NBC across the country. Most of the teams that entered this tournament play exclusive Rugby Sevens.

Our Hermits team placed 6th and had a signature 29-0 win over Malvern Prep. The over all winner, Archmere Academy, squeaked by the Prep with a 17-10 win. However, their coach commented that the Prep was his toughest opponent!  

Our players met every challenge and were highly lauded by the end of the tournament. Overall, it was a great experience for the boys and the Prep community.
