Congratulations U12 State Champions and U15 Runner Ups!

Culpeper Youth Rugby Club won their first State Rugby Championship on May 14 at the Virginia Youth & High School State Championships. Playing as the “Barbarians,” sixteen athletes from Culpeper Youth Rugby combined with five athletes from Western Suburbs, Southwestern Youth Association (SYA) and Battlefield Rugby to win the U12 Peanut Division State Championship.

The Barbarians completed their undefeated season with a 33-17 victory over Loudoun Rugby at the Culpeper Sports Complex. Culpeper Youth Rugby athletes Ashton Thompson, Jayden Wrigley and Ryland Glascoe combined to score five tries worth twenty-five points with Hamilton Carter connecting on four conversions, adding another eight points. Culpeper’s Brycen Butler was selected as match MVP for consistent work in the rucks and ferocious tackling.

Culpeper Youth Rugby athletes with the U15 Barbarians finished second in the state after a 17-12 loss in the U15 Wild Boar State Championship match against the Richmond Strikers. Culpeper’s Kaiya Wrigley was selected as match MVP playing a tough match from the scrumhalf position.
