Local Murderball Team Advances to Sectionals
Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana (RHI) Indy Quad Squad
advances to Sectionals in Saginaw Michigan, March 7-9
(INDIANAPOLIS – IN) The RHI Indy Quad Squad was successful at the United States Quad Rugby Association (USQRA) Heartland North Regional in Dayton, OH Feb. 8-10. The team advanced to the Sectional Tournament in Saginaw, MI March 7-9. Murderball, or Quad Rugby, is a fast-paced, full contact wheelchair sport played on a basketball court by athletes with some loss of function in all four limbs. This is the second consecutive year that the hard-hitting RHI Indy Quad Squad has advanced to the Sectionals.
“The best of times the worst of times,” said Jason Taylor, Indy Quad Squad Coach. “I definitely saw areas where we need to improve, but seriously, it was an overall good weekend as we qualified for Sectionals for the second straight year. Of course our goal is to make Nationals in Louisville this spring”
The RHI Indy Quad Squad, Indiana’s only Quad Rugby team, is on their tenth year as a team and a member of the USQRA. The team can be seen practicing for their up coming tournament at the 10th Street Sports Complex located at West 10th St. and Raceway Rd. in Indianapolis on Saturday afternoons.
The RHI Indy Quad Squad is part of the RHI Sports Program (RHISP), a not-for-profit. RHISP was created by Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana and is housed under its Foundation. The program is dedicated to providing competitive and non-competitive athletic opportunities to individuals with disabilities to enhance quality of life, promote physical fitness, introduce recreational and wheelchair sports, and challenge participants to perform at a competitive level.
The USQRA National Tournament is in Louisville, KY this April 11-13.
