Two young women from Texas are representing us on the USA Rugby’s Girl’s High School All American Team—and one of them is even from Plano. Reagan Hunter (16) of Plano, Texas, and McKenzie Borchers (16) of Kingwood, Texas, are both headed to Emmitsburg, Maryland, this week to train with the rest of the Girls High School All-Americans (GHSAAs). This is a huge accomplishment, and it’s not the first time local rugby programs have excelled this year. Plano Rugby recently won the 2016 Rugby State Championship, and Hunter and Borchers were named Forward and Back of the Year, respectively, by Rugby Texas.

Four matches will be held on Friday, July 29 and Sunday, July 31. The girls report tomorrow to Maryland for three days of training camp before playing in two matches against a Canadian side. Wish them luck!
