In 1963, Middleton Regional High School captured its first rugby championship. The seventeen member strong team was coached by MRHS Coach Emeritus Albert L. Peppard.
In their first two games of that season, they faced the always formidable Kings College School from Windsor. In a home and away series, the boys from MRHS vanquished their foes from KCS by scores of 5-0 and 11-0. In their next assignment against arch-rival Bridgetown Regional High School, the Middleton squad ran them into the ground with a score of 17-0.
In a much shortened season the boys were then ready for the playoffs. In a two game total point match up beginning in Windsor, the boys from MRHS galloped to a 20-0 victory, only to lose by a score of 11-8 on their home field but capturing the series by a score of 28-11.
The championship would be a single sudden death game against the perennial powerhouse from New Glasgow High School on the neutral T.A.A.C. grounds in Truro. The game was hard fought all the way with Middleton grabbing the win by a score of 2-0 on a penalty kick by Barry Parent.
All in all, the MRHS boys were very much deserving of their title having outscored their opponents 66-11 for the season and giving up only one try in six games.
