Queen's Girls Rugby Tournament - Report 04.08.14
The girls rugby team took the field for the first time today playing in the Queen's University tournament on a wet, cold, miserable day. The team was a mixture of experienced and brand new players. The girls started off against Sir Oliver Mowat from Scarborough in the driving rain, and despite a close game, came up on the losing end of a 7-0 score. The next game against Brockville Colegiate saw Annie Kennedy get the first points of the season by kicking a penalty, then both she and Lily Dickson followed this up with tries to give Regi the 13-7 win. The third game against Holy Trinity of Ottawa was again a hard fought battle, and despite being on the try line twice, Regi just couldn't get the ball over for the score and came up on the losing end. The final game against Ernestown saw a mainly rookie team take the field and with much improved rucking and tackling, come away with tries by Lily Dickson, Hannah Greenwood, and Annie Kennedy and 1 convert by Annie for a 17-0 win. The day saw rookie players stepping up and veterans showing consistency and leadership on the field. Well done girls.anther Players and Parents can Click Here to see a complete draw for the upcoming tournament.
Panthers in Command in Washington 04.05.14
Under beautiful sunny skies again on Sunday, the Regipolis-Notre Dame Senior Boys Rugby squad opened up their 2014 rugby season with an undefeated sweep at the 48th annual Cherry Blossom tournament, hoisting the championship trophy high. It started with a very physical match vs Trinity Private School from Melbourne Australia. Rhys Davies scored the lone try and Jacob Denofereo scored a penalty kick bringing the Panthers to a 10-7 victory.
Next up was Hampton Heat A-Side from Virginia. For the Finals the boys where pumped and flying high. Every time the backs got the ball we shredded the defence. Harris McEachern and Tyler Ling had two tries, Courtney Norris scored one try while Jacob Denofreo and Rhys Davies had 2 and 1 converts respectively bringing the Garnet and Gold to a 31-15 victory.

Saturday was a great day with beautiful weather in Washington D.C. Playing inside the centre field of a race track, Rosecroft raceway the Cherry Blosson tournament is spread over five fields. NCAA Division 1 schools men's and women's are playing along side high school sides from Canada and the United States.
RND's first game was against Innisdale SS out of Barrie. The Panthers were victorious14-5 to start the day. Not bad for RND's first time on grass. Next the Panthers played the Hampton Patriots from Virginia. This team was huge, but had limited skill. RND loaded up with our top players and thumped them 34-0.
Tomorrow/Sunday the Garnet and Gold face Trinity Private school based out of Melbourne Australia. If RND wins the Panthers are off to the finals. Should be interesting.
Stand out players were Rhys Davies, Tyler Ling, Jacob Denofreo. Iron Man, Connor Tobin never left the field. JM Noël is unmovable, but surprising fleet of foot.
Overall, a good day. Hopefully tomorrow Mr. Amos will send the RND Scoreboard a pic of the Panthers hoisting the trophy.

Rome Wasn't Built in a Day 04.05.14
Successful sports programming takes time, talent, dedication and most importantly hard work. Proof of that is the RND Boys Rugby team. Only a few years ago RND struggled to find enough players to field a team, groups that competed but often placed out of the KASSAA playoffs.
Some time and the dedication and effort of coaches and players have now built RND Rugby into an exemplary high school sports program. Building through KASSAA regular season success, close calls in the KASSAA finals and then the break-through in 2013 - KASSAA/EOSSAA Championships and a Silver Medal at OFSAA.
