History

The Team was honored to be invited on a tour of Wales in March 2015 where they played a series of games against clubs from Wales. They plan to travel to Wales again in the spring of 2017. Also in 2015, the team placed second in the Pennsylvania HS State Rugby Championship.  Over the years, Conestoga has won the EPRU (now known as Rugby Pa) Championship several times and has represented the EPRU and Mid-Atlantic Rugby Football Union (MARFU) at the National Championship Tournament.
