The high school boys began their season with an unscored friendly against Fairport. Michael Greene, a longtime member of the club who came up through our Youth and Middle School programs, found the try zone for Kenmore's lone score.

"I'm glad we were able to schedule this, it was good for the boys to shake the rust off before the regular season gets underway. I'm looking forward to seeing what we can accomplish." - Kenmore Rugby HS Boys Head Coach Mackenzie Doolittle

The high school girls continued to improve, seeing several players make great strides in their individual games. They opened the day with a 25-0 loss to Fairport, but this team is nothing if not resilient. In Game 2 they found a little offense, courtesy of a Taylor Stevens try, but fell to Hamburg 20-5. After a break, they rematched with Fairport and played to a 17 apiece draw. Rosie Miller continued her hot start to the season by scoring twice, Karli Schmidt scored a try and added a conversion for the tie. Lastly, the girls returned to play Hamburg and lost 15-5, with Stevens scoring the lone Kenmore try.

"It might not have been our day on the scoreboard, but I am immensely proud of these girls. We didn't have our best stuff, but they were undeterred, always focusing on the next job. Each of them continue to get better every week." - Kenmore Rugby HS Girls Head Coach Rachel Noone

Next on the schedule, the girls take on City Honors and Hamburg in another 7s round robin. The boys are off this weekend, before opening their league season on May 5th.
