Local collegiate programs well represented in Wisconsin select side team.

The Milwaukee area collegiate programs were well represented in the State select side announced today. 11 of the 26 man roster were from the Milwaukee area programs. Marquette University will be represented by the largest contingent, having four players selected. The team will represent the state in the Midwest LAU Collegiate Championship this spring.

With the inclusion of the players selected from UW-Whitewater, the south eastern area provided over half the players for the select side. This demonstrates the quality of the local area programs.

The Milwaukee Harlequins would like to extend our congratulations to all the players selected and to the Coaching staff at each of the programs. The style and level of talent demonstrated by all the local players who were at the try outs on Sundays was impressive.

As the coach of the Milwaukee Harlequins I would like to extend an offer to all the programs;

To the players-

You are all welcome to the Harlequins trainings this spring and also in our newly developed Sevens program this summer.

To the Coaches-

Our goal is the development of rugby as a whole and would like to help the high school and college programs in the area. To that end , if there are areas where you are looking for assistance in the coaching and development of your players and team, please contact us we would like to help.
