It is claimed that Rugby started in 1883 when a student picked up a soccer ball and started running with it. Our lads and lasses do much more than that. Under the tutelage of coaches MacPherson and Hepworth, with the occasional assist from other faculty members, students learn the essential skills to play this complex sport. They also learn teamwork, camaraderie and that it is "a sport of scoundrels played by gentlemen (women)". All students, grades 8 - 12 are welcome to join, season starts in February.
