FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook Girls Rugby Club (FGRC) will take to the field Sunday, Feb. 25, to kick off the transition from high school season to club season but with a few twists...taffeta tackling and satin scrums. The annual Prom Dress Rugby event is a fun-raiser to help support the athletes aiming to compete at the national level again in 2018.

The public is invited to come watch the juxtaposition of young ladies (and coaches) in frilly dresses and aggressive rugby ball play at the Fallbrook High School stadium from 12 to 3 p.m. Feb. 25. Admission is $5.

Women's rugby is the fastest-growing sport in the country, and the FGRC was the first place women's rugby team in the United States for five consecutive years, 2011-2015. FGRC took second in 2010, 2016 and 2017.

Many of the team's alumni have gone on to play in college as well as on the elite U.S. Eagles team. Led by world-class coaches Craig and Marin Pinnell, John Duncan, Ken Devore and Johni Durbin, registrations are still being accepted for the 2018 club season.
