The Boswell Rugby club began in the Spring of 2014. Ironically it wasn't your typical group to start a rugby club. The founding members were all student athletes and all girls. The faculty sponsor, Mrs. Nash-Blasingame, was excited to get this program off the ground. In the Spring of 2015, Mrs. Baker stepped in to help sponsor the group as well and has continued to do so and is continuing to work to promote the club and the sport. In the fall of 2015, Mrs. Nash-Blasingame had to step down in order fulfill other obligations. Mrs. Grucza has joined us as the new co-sponsor!
The Boswell Rugby Club is affiliated with the Eagle Mountain Rugby Club. This allows players from neighboring schools to participate with the Boswell students during games and tournaments. In addition to the Boswell teams, Eagle Mountain Rugby Club is planning to have a 5th/6th grade team and a middle school team this year.
In 2014, during their first season, the girls Varsity team (playing as part of the Eagle Mountain Rugby Club) finished in fourth place at the TX State Championships behind three well established teams; Plano, Kingwood and the Woodlands. The girls Varsity team placed 4th again in the TX State Championships again in April 2015. This year the goal is to have enough girls to field two teams and compete again for the state championships in Spring of 2016!
We are also planning to have a JV and Varsity boys team this year as well. There are several incoming freshman from Wayside Middle School and surrounding schools that played with Eagle Mountain Rugby last year that will be helping to build the first Varsity and JV teams at Boswell.
