The 2019 Season was a great one for the Lethbridge Rugby Club, with teams competing in the Women’s Division I, Men’s Division II, and Men’s Division III of the Calgary Rugby Union.
Our women had a remarkable year, taking only a single loss in the regular season and coming out on top of both the regular season standings *and* the playoffs, taking home the Calgary Rugby Union Women’s Division I Championship and adding to the club’s hardware.
Men’s Division II had a shaky start, but recovered, finishing with an even record at 5-5 and securing third place in the regular season standings. This set the men up for a semi-final playoff match vs The Canucks. It was a tough match, with LRC having a number of injured players, and we took a disheartening loss 59-19 at Calgary Rugby Park. Congratulations to both the Canucks for handing us a loss and the other teams in Men’s Division II.
Men’s Division III found itself in a rebuilding year in 2019, with a handful of players completely new to senior rugby making up the core of our players. Although a 1-8 record for the season was not a desired outcome, our new players stood strong and picked up skills and a love for the game along the way. Well done lads!
