Welcome to the New
Rochelle High School Rugby Site!
New Rochelle High
School Rugby was born in 1996 – sixteen rabid
squirrels fighting over a giant acorn on a forgotten
corner of campus (which has since become a parking
lot). We spent our awkward youth shuttling back and
forth between our true home and City Park, where we
had to paint our own lines and erect our own goal
posts. Some would argue that the new parking lot
provided a safer playing surface than the hardened
dirt and rock of City Park. Yet, we endured!
Eventually, we were embraced by the Athletic
Department and invited home – McKenna Field. We have
grown from sixteen to sixty, from rabid squirrels to
Huguenots, but we have not abandoned our battle cry:
Nux Enormus! Nux Enormus!
