Rugby Wins MAVRC Championship, Nationals Up Next

On Tuesday, May 10th, Gonzaga's Varsity Purple Rugby Eagles captured the MAVRC Championship with a 48-14 victory over Georgetown Prep on Buchanan Field.

Coming out of halftime, Gonzaga held a slim 17-14 lead. The Eagles took control early in the second half and did not look back as they shut out Little Hoyas the rest of the way. Coach Baggetta's team has won the MAVRC Championship every year since 2011. 

Here are some great photos from the win:
