Last Chance for Midwest Championships

The Following Teams have signed up to compete in the Midwest Championships at the Moose Rugby Grounds in Elkhart, Indiana April 27th-28th.  This is the last chance for any teams to sign up.  Please see Midwest Youth Rugby for more info.

This event is a special competition in that it brings together the best girls teams, and only girls teams, from multiple states to compete in multiple brackets.  It's the longest-running girls regional championship in the country, first having begun in 1998.  Every state champion from the six Midwest states with girls 15's team will compete, except one.  Iowa plays girls 7's in the fall exclusively, for now.

The notable omission from the list is Lakewood, Ohio, who, for the second year in a row has chosen to bypass the event.  Lakewood narrowly defeated Ohio rival St Joseph's Academy 25-22 in their conference match last Wednesday, so it's clear SJA will be championship contender.  This year's Midwest Championship looks to be the most competitive and well-attended to date.
