Innagural Founders Cup
On Saturday, August 30, 2008, Catholic Memorial powered past the Brookfield Bruisers with an impressive 39-10 victory in the inaugural Founders' Cup match. Although only a pre-season scrimmage, CMH came ready to play, displaying depth and discipline to out score its cross-county rivals. An inexperienced, CMH-B went on to lose to an under-staffed Kettle Moraine side 40-5.
Also worth noting, the rumor is that Catholic Memorial High School may be granting its players varsity letters for their work on the rugby field, adding further legitimacy to the Club. Despite all the debates about "varsity" status, in the final analysis, the term "varsity" is a recognition by an individual school of the efforts of its athletes. There can be no doubt to anyone who watches a match, that these players are "varsity" caliber athletes. Kudos to CMHS for recognizing the efforts of its students.
Coaches --- just a reminder -- please send score reports (and photos if you have them).
