Rugby match won't happen

A college rugby match that had been tentatively scheduled for April 13 at the Baker Sports Complex has been canceled, Baker High School athletic director Brad Dunten said Wednesday.

Dunten said the University of Utah, which had been slated to play Oregon State University, decided not to participate.

The two schools had discussed playing a match that had been postponed earlier.

Officials were looking for a neutral site roughly midway between Corvallis and Salt Lake City. Baker City was picked as a possible site because several Baker High School graduates played rugby at Oregon State, and some of the alumni have contacts with Oregon State coaches.
