  • PAC Rugby, SWARM are polar...

    The similarities are there, especially in the physical nature between the sports, but as Greysen Lincoln points out, there’s one major difference between rugby and football.
    “It’s a lot more of an active sport. You’ve got to be a lot more aware. You have to know where all your guys are unlike in football,” Lincoln said. “It’s a lot more team-oriented. You’ve all got to be a cohesive unit. That’s also the case in football, but it’s a lot more apparent in rugby.”

    DENVER — There was a coaching change and there were some injuries, yet somehow, some way the Dakota Ridge Lady Eagles were playing in the 5A Great Eight. The end result — a 50-40 loss to top-seeded Fossil Ridge in the Sharon Wilch Regional finals March 6 at the Denver Coliseum — couldn’t take away from the season that was for the Lady Eagles.

    Lauren Wood and Jae Ferrin proved that two were better than one, and because of that the Dakota Ridge Lady Eagles are going to the Great Eight.
