The new millennium was another packed season including nineteen matches, twelve of those victorious. Old friends and previous hosts on earlier tours of ours came to stay at Greenwich as Risca RFC of South Wales and Del Campo Cougars RFC of Sacramento, CA. stayed in our houses and enjoyed a friendly match with us. Though we beat the Welsh in a close test match, the western Sacramento boys gave us a friendly beating. The Cherry Blossom was snowed out in the middle of a 19-7 lead over Xavier, but our record gave us a high seed at the Easterns. Placing third at Easterns meant another trip to the mountains of Provo, Utah at BYU for the National Championships. The long season took its toll on the Cardinals as players were injured heading into New Englands where we placed a disappointing second. The team lost a couple close ones at Nationals and finished eighth. The Cardinals were led by Eric Peterson, Rick Sullivan and Jon Trepanier- New to the coaching squad was a White Plains standout, James Carey. It was a special season for the Sullivan family as Rick Sr., and his wife, Marilyn had the joy of watching three of their sons start on the first fifteen; Rick, Sam and John. Rick Sullivan had a senior year to remember tying the single season try mark with 25 tries and good buddy and fellow senior, Bobby Bailey wrapped up his career at GHS setting the all-time points record with 216 points.
