Rainier Plateau Junior Rugby prepares for fourth season of competition
Louie Henson was born to play rugby. Although the Auburn High School junior is turning out for the Rainier Plateau Junior Rugby Association this season for just the second year, the rugged sport is in his blood. “I’ve really only been playing for a year, but I’ve been learning since I was 2 or 3,” Henson said. Henson’s love for rugby comes from his father, Gerry Henson, who wrestled and played rugby at Western Washington University, and was one of the founding members of the 1973 Chuckanut Bay Rugby.
