It has been a great season for rugby this year. The Rimbey Spartan senior girls are undefeated in league play and are hoping to capture the league banner for the first time in years.

The girls have defeated Hunting Hills, Rocky, Olds, and Lindsay Thurber and were hoping to capture a win against Lacombe on May 19. The girls went up against some stiff competition during a tournament on May 13 and 14, and it was great to see them developing their defensive game in preparation for playoffs and hopefully, provincials.

The final home game is May 25, against Notre Dame High School. So far, Notre Dame has proven they are the team to beat, so it should be a fantastic game.

Playoffs take place on June 1 at the Red Deer Titans Rugby Park at 4 p.m. and once again the girls are hoping to head off to provincials on June 10 and 11.

In junior rugby, the girls have shown a great deal of promise and have undergone huge development since the beginning of the year. We are very excited to see such development in our younger players and look forward to seeing these girls again next year. The junior team has only one game left and they will head to Red Deer on May 30 for the final wrap-up of their season.
