Broomfield, CO, October 08, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Mike G. Gabriel Football Stadium at Holy Family High School in Broomfield will be the site of the 2008 Colorado Youth Rugby Girls State Championship Matches. On November 1st, from 1-5 pm, Tigers Rugby Football Club will host the Championship and Consolation matches. In addition, an All Star format for the rest of the league will open the slate.
Holy Family HS Athletic Director, Mr. Ben Peterson had graciously granted Tigers Rugby approval for the proposal on September 8th, while the CYR Executive Committee deliberated three proposals. By majority vote on September 17th, the Board of Directors accepted a proposal by Tigers Rugby head coach Paul O’Brian, beating out Infinity Park in Glendale, and Shea Stadium in Littleton.
Tigers Rugby Football Club and their sponsors are excited to bring this event to the Broomfield area. Though Tigers Rugby does not coach a girls team, they are proud to present this major championship event.
Girls rugby is expected to become a Colorado High School Athletic Association (CHSAA) sanctioned sport in 2010. Mike G. Gabriel Football Stadium was also the site of the Colorado Youth Rugby All Star matches and Select Side try-outs in May 2006.
For information on volunteer efforts including Game Day and promotional preparation, please call Coach O'Brian at (303) 506-8110.
