Coach Kelsey Harris and Coach Plouffe are extremely excited about the upcoming 2019 Trinity Rugby season. The season begins with the annual trip to Nashville to play in one of the more prestigious High School Rugby tournaments in the South (Nash Bash). Trinity has gone undefeated at Nash Bash for 3 straight years. The 2019 season brings successful programs to the schedule, renews some old rivalries here in Kentucky and of course sees tough Rugby Indiana conference play. Some of the high profile road games are at Moeller High School (OH), Louisville St X, Central Kentucky Spartans and Columbus High School (IN). The squad will take on a strong Rugby Indiana Conference schedule that includes Avon HS (IN) and Columbus HS (IN). Team goals are to get over the hump against St X, to win State in Kentucky and to ensure a rightful spot in the 2019 Rugby Indiana State Playoffs.
