MOUNT VERNON - Alexandria's co-ed touch rugby teams reached the championships in all aged leagues on Sunday, July 23. The Pre-K/Kindergarten team played relentlessly to win the championship against Richmond despite being down a player for the entire game.

Alexandria Rugby had its best ever showing at the State Championships held on July 22 and June 23 at James S. Long Regional Park in Haymarket. Alexandria teams finished with two championships, and three other rankings.

"Every one of our players really showed their parents and coaches how tough and determined they are.” said Director of Alexandria Youth Rugby Owen Malone. “They never gave up and didn’t want to let their teammates down. We are all very proud and optimistic about Alexandria Rugby’s future.”

There was a tackle tournament held on Saturday in which the teams earned 3rd and 5th place.
