Celebrating the 2023 Season

Coach Kluempers led the Saints Rugby family of players, managers, coaches, trainers, and parents in celebrating the 2023 season at the annual Rugby Banquet on Wednesday, May 31. 

The Saints played a tough schedule this year against a high level of competition (10 nationally ranked teams). The team traveled many miles to play rugby in Tulsa, St. Louis, Denver, and Houston. Saints Rugby finished the season 2nd in the state of Kansas and 8th in the Boys High School Rugby National Championships in Elkhart, Indiana.

These team awards were presented at the Rugby Banquet, voted on by the players and the coaches:

  • Most Valuable Forward = Carson Kraft
  • Most Valuable Back = Austin Turner
  • Most Improved Player = Owen Charlton
  • Most Inspirational Player = Trevor Mogren
  • MVP of JV = Joe Goza
  • MVP of Varsity = Cooper Mogren

Congratulations to all of these young men! Many thanks to seniors Cooper Mogren and Austin Turner for their leadership, and we wish them the best as they head off to college this fall.

Egg My Yard 2023

By Saints Rugby 03/05/2023, 10:45pm CST

Sales are now open for the 2023 Egg My Yard fundraiser! This annual Saints Rugby fundraiser is a favorite of families and our rugby players.

Rugby players help the Easter Bunny deliver candy-filled eggs on Saturday night, and kids wake up to a yard filled with Easter eggs on Sunday morning. 

People can register and pay online through our Eventbrite site at

Registration will be open until March 31 or until we sell out. We’ll turn off sales at 200 houses or 10,000 eggs, whichever we hit first. The last 2 years we’ve sold out before the deadline, so if you know of people who want to order eggs, encourage them not to wait.

Boys will be delivering eggs on Saturday, April 8, after dark. Underclassmen ride with the upperclassmen. It’s a good time for the boys, the parents of these kids also enjoy it, and of course the big smiles of the little kids waking up to a yard full of eggs is priceless!

We will deliver to the cities of Olathe, Overland Park, Shawnee, Lenexa, and Leawood.


25 eggs for $25
50 eggs for $50
100 eggs for $75

Parents:  View the Sign Up Genius to contribute plastic eggs and Easter candy to fill them!
