Hendricken's Ruggers hoist the championship trophy.
Bishop Hendricken won the Massachusetts High School Division 1 State Championship in Rugby on Saturday.

Yes, the same Bishop Henricken located in Warwick, Rhode Island.

As the only high school in Rhode Island with a rugby team, Hendricken plays in the Mass. Youth Rugby Organization.  Hendricken has won over 170 state championships in Rhode Island high school sports, and this weekend marks the historic first Massachusetts high school state championship for the Hawks.

Hendricken defeated Belmont High School 21-19 in the championship game.  The Hawks were the only team to defeat Belmont all season.
