We are so excited to partner with Bee Graphix Fredericktown in creating an online merchandise store! A portion of each sale will go to the team so please show your school spirit while supporting your favorite rugby team! Sales ends October 17th so don’t wait and order now!
These are great items for players, parents, and fans so spread the word to anyone who wants to rock RMU Rugby gear.
A few notes:
1. Our team is improving every week and they have shown that they will give 100% to win the game. Alumni, parents and supporters we’ve got a great group of new players at RMU!
We will get back to the standards that we have previously experienced and expect from our team every year.
2. Our annual Homecoming “Under the lights at JWS” is coming up. We need the same great or GREATER turnout that we had for the alumni game. Bill is working a deal with the school for the 1921 Club, he has details. I’m working a deal at Patricks on a buffet of wings for players and alumni if/when the team beats Geneva! #WillWinforWings!
3. Lastly the team has placed a boathouse order for jackets and pants if any alumni want to get in I need to know ASAP…
4. We play CMU at 2pm at JWS on Saturday love to get some alumni out to watch. It’s a rematch of last years semi final that RMU won.
We are having an excellent kick off to our Fall 2018 campaign. 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 fall we are participating in the ARU’s Fall 7s League, and we started our season with a band defeating Gannon University in 2 out of 3 matches. Great performances by all of our new players who had a blast and can’t wait for the rest of the season especially our big night under the lights of Joe Walton on Saturday October 13th at 7pm versus Clarion.
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.
