Congratulations to the 23rd ranked Robert Morris University Rugby who are the Three Rivers Rugby Conference Champions after defeating 3rd ranked Franciscan University by a score of 19-0. RMU will represent the Conference in the NSCRO Champions Cup National Playoffs on Nov. 10-11 at Madison United Rugby & Wisconsin Rugby Sports Complex in Cottage Grove, WI.
We are making huge strides this fall with our first ever winning record of 10-4! This was the inaugural season of the ARU’s Fall 7s League, and it was the perfect competition for our team. We finished in second place in the regular season, and third place in our final tournament. This spring we will compete again searching for a bid to NSCRO 7s Nationals.
Huge shout out to alumnae Emily Carney and Katherine Konsenko who were excellent assistant coaches this fall. We appreciate your time and energy you put into improving the team.
Thanks to Men’s Assistant Coach and Alum Nate Turner who helped us spread the word to incoming freshmen about our team through the Admissions Office. We’ve had a dedicated core group from the first week of school who have quickly bonded into a rugby family.
This year saw the alumni take control of the match from start to finish. Great to see so many former players, friends and parents come back for our annual match on move in Saturday. And for the current squad it was a solid effort against the core of the back to back championship teams of 2014 & ‘15.
