On Thursday, May 11th, Rugby hosted the MAVRC Championship vs Georgetown Prep on Buchanan Field. The Little Hoyas played tough early, but the Eagles held a 17-0 advantage at half.

Check out this highlight from the first half: 
Gonzaga defeated Georgetown Prep 34-0 in the end to win its 10th consecutive MAVRC title. 

"The high quality of play that the Gonzaga Rugby Program produces year after year is beyond impressive," said Assistant Athletic Director Marshall Marks '14. "It is a testament to Coach Baggetta, Lee Kelly, and all the other coaches, administrators, and parents who have cared for and dedicated time into this program."

Next up, Rugby will head to Indiana to compete for a National Championship. Nationals run from May 25th-27th. You can find the schedule here.
