League Meeting-New Teams

A slow week for WGR, as the emphasis shifts to off-season matters. Our staff field reporters are closing up shop for the winter, and finalizing picture entries for our state-wide contest.

Miscellaneous news bites:

Looking ahead, the All-Wisconsin Girls Rugby league meetings take place December 5th.

With scheduling on the agenda, any new high school girls rugby programs in Wisconsin are asked to attend and apply for membership. Interested girls, coaches, or parents should contact our league offices at

It was great to see a lot of WGR alumni continuing their experience with collegiate women's rugby. Alumni girls were all over the fields at last weekend's Midwest Collegiate Chamionships in Cottage Grove, Wisconsin. Midwest D1 Champs, Univ-Northern Iowa had two freshman, Kaisse '11 from Brookfield and Talia '11 from KM respectively, starting on their team. The Midwest D2 champs likewise featured a starting freshman scrumhalf from Vernon and a wing from CMHS. Grand Valley St, third in Midwest D2 also featured a starting scrumhalf from CMHS. We probably missed some, but it was great to see so many young ladies continuing to play!

I am researching non-WIAA sports being played by high school girls in southeastern Wisconsin.

How long has girl's high school rugby been played competitively in the area? When was the Wisconsin High School Girls Rugby league established?

We can send you a bunch of historical summaries we have of girls rugby in Wisconsin.

1996 is when things got started.
