About The Youngstown Steel Valley Rugby Club
Youngstown first became involved in Rugby in the spring of 1973 with the help of Steve Bolton and John Rowland. Bolton was a player for the University of Virginia and Rowland from Williams College. Youngstown started out with a squad of five members. Through recruiting their numbers eventually grew enough to host an A, B, and C squads.
Youngstown R.F.C. achieved 112 victories, 17 losses, and 1 tie in their first five seasons. Those numbers include the record of all three squads. In the spring of 1981, Youngstown was selected to go to the Midwest Rugby Tournament. They beat the host, Milwaukee, 14-0 and lost to the champions, Indianapolis, 8-4. In the spring of 1982, Youngstown was again invited to the Midwest Rugby Tournament. They lost to the champions, Chicago, 32-4.
In the early years Youngstown hosted teams from South Africa, England, Ireland, and Whales. Mark Chine and Glen Civak were the team captains at the time. They would go on to form the Steel Valley Rugby Club after Youngstown Rugby Football Club was disbanded in the mid 1980’s by the Ohio Rugby Union.
