Rugby

The San Clemente Triton Rugby Club is gaining momentum following its first full season of competition. The club, which was founded by several San Clemente High School student-athletes this year, had more than 40 players suit up in 2015 and reached another important landmark this offseason.

Senior rugby player Hayden Malone was offered a scholarship to play rugby for Grand Canyon University. Malone is the club’s first-ever player to be offered a collegiate scholarship.

The San Clemente Triton Rugby Club had a successful first season. The varsity team compiled a 3-1-1 overall record in its inaugural year and the junior varsity team went a perfect 8-0 on the season.
