News

PALISADE, Colo. –

The Western Slope’s newest rugby club, 4 Corners Rugby Academy, held its first-ever tournament. 4 Corners hosted the “Peach Town Throw Down”.

The event featured food truck vendors and a beer garden for players and fans alike.

One of the teams that made the trek to Palisade is the SLC Gladiators. They were featured in our highlights and took home the inaugural hardware.

4 Corners Rugby is a local non-profit that has been operating for about a year. The group works in conjunction with the previously existing Grand Junction Griffins team, and hopes to expand to the youth, high school, and adult levels.
