                              the state champions with a 22-19 overtime win.           earned that title.
                                  Rugby is a fairly new team at Menchville, with
                              spring 2011 opening their third season. However,
                              talent and victory are nothing new to this team.
                                  The game of rugby originated in England
                              during the 19th century and it has now made its way
                              to Newport News.
                                  Ruslan Komynarets, a first year member of the
                              2010 team, said, “I wanted to play a sport where I
                              can have fun and compete with my teammates”.
                                  To Komynarets, rugby was the perfect choice.
                              Talking to some of the players and watching a

                              unified team can be seen.
                                  Many people say that winning a state
                              championship is something a team never forgets.
                              Graham King said that becoming the champions
                              was, “Amazing. I don’t think anyone expected us to
                              win. I never felt so accomplished”.
                                  The rugby team will never forget that
                              accomplishment. Especially with state championship
                              rings which many of the players now proudly wear
                              after their recent Ring Ceremony, which included
                              the attendance of all administrators.
                                  At Menchville, rugby is still only a club and not
                              an official team. Many, in the school community,
                                                                                      The MHS Rugby team gathers around for a team picture.
