U19 Girls (High School)
In 2001 Rich L’Ecuyer established the first ever North Penn High School Girls rugby team. The following years coaches Ron Ziegler and Brian Pickersgill joined the coaching squad. In 2004 the team took on the moniker of the Rucking Ducks, an homage to the old Men’s team, in an attempt to create their own identity and story. From 2004-2009 the girls reached the knock-out stages of the EPRU playoffs each year and all but two years saw the girls in the championship game, establishing themselves as a premier team in the East Penn Union.
In 2010-2011, Jesse Richter, Chris Bancroft, and Rob Grassi took over coaching duties for the girls and along with a strong core of family support and volunteers established the newly named Valkyries as a premier high school girl’s program. The girl’s have shown their worth at national tournaments in D.C. and Nashville against tough competition. All the hard work during the formative years had resulted in The Valkyries bringing home TWO Rugby PA State Championships to the club in 2015 & 2017. As an organization we have seen our young women go on to play at elite rugby colleges & universities such as: Life, Penn State, and Lindenwood. Six players who started their rugby career at North Penn RFC during 2001-2010 had invitations to try out for the USA National teams; three of those six players were selected for the national team. In 2021 the U19 Girl’s Team is now Called MBRFC, Griffins and are in the process of securing a new coach to continue with the teams success.
