The nationally-ranked Herriman rugby team is without its much-needed equipment and trailer that were stolen early Friday morning.
According to the GoFundMe account to recuperate the loss, the list of stolen items valued at nearly $12,000 includes:
- 40 Rugby Pro Balls
- 15 Hit Shields
- 3 Tackle Dummies
- 4 Full sets of Jerseys
- Field Striping Kit
- 50 + cones and more
The account stated:
It has taken 10 years of hard work and dedication from players and parents to work hard for what was lost. Our Rugby program was built from the ground up by our founder/head coach, Jeff Wilson.
Herriman Rugby is a nonfunded school sport where our boys work hard with fundraising and parents help to pay for the cost of playing.
We are desperate to recoup our gear.
Our boys, grades 7-12 work very hard to build this club and are proud of every accomplishment.
Jodie Elldredge Fountaine posted on Facebook how upset she is about the trailer heist. She said:
While so many people might think it’s only equipment, it’s really the hard work of ten years of boys and families who have fundraised and donated and worked hard to pay their dues to build this program.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Herriman Police Department at 801-858-0035.
