Jesters open club rugby season at Pendleton


WALLA WALLA - The U-19 Jesters rugby club began its second season Saturday at the first East of the Cascades Rugby Tournament. The event was held in Pendleton, although host sites will rotate annually. The Bend Blues, Yakima Griffins, Schoolhose RFC (Wenatchee) and the Pendleton Sasquatch also attended the match.

Each team played three full matches, although scores were not kept. For the Jesters, accolades were given to Jon Blanc, Keith Opsal, Fernando Garcia, Julian Hayword, Joab Neri and Parker Eaglestone for their solid play throughout the day.

The Jesters host the Yakima Griffins at 1 p.m. Saturday at Ankeny Field on the Whitman College campus. For more information, contact coach Eric McAlvey at 509-876-6100 or
