Wolfpack combines forces with Upper Valley to hit the 7’s circuit!

Posted by on July 13th, 2019


On 6/29, 7/6, and 7/13 – Monadnock Wolfpack joined forces with “friendly-foe” Upper Valley to create the “Monadnock Valley Mountain Wolves” – to participate in the Boston, Springfield, and Worcester Rugby 7’s tournaments. This combined team brought together athletes and leadership of both programs to collaborate on an effort that showed great promise, and earned hardware in the final two competitions of the summer. While battle between these two programs is fierce during 15’s season, this inaugural partnership could be the start of something fun to watch for years to come!

Sad News for a Happy Cause

Posted by on January 19th, 2019


It's a shame that some Wolfpack members will be going a few days without a beard after today's event… while others may take the rest of their lives to grow back a 5 o'clock shadow! The "science" behind beards is amazing. This graphic, from a "leading" source, shows what our great sponsors are depriving us of, in the name of fighting cancer…

Worthy cause indeed!

Thanks so much to Nye Hill Farm, Branch and Blade Brewing, SERVPRO of Cheshire County, Beeze Tees Screen Printing, The Barbery In Keene, NH, 21 Bar & Grill, Greenwald Realty Associates, Savings Bank of Walpole, Paige Catherine Hudon, Bellows-Nichols Insurance Agency, THE SERVICE GUY, LLC, and so many others who have been so supportive for this event!

It's not too late to donate! https://www.classy.org/campaign/shave-to-save/c209776
