  • Rugby - Varsity Purple

    2017 - 2018
    Head Coach: Peter Baggetta

    Since its founding as a club sport in 1987, Gonzaga Rugby has consistently grown and thrived—introducing hundreds of Gonzaga students to the sport and, along the way, evolving into a national powerhouse. Today, Gonzaga fields four Rugby squads with a total of more than 200 players. The Varsity Purple team has won ten consecutive Metro Area Varsity Rugby Conference (MAVRC) Championships and won the National Championship three out of the last four years.

    Every year, the team travels abroad over Spring Break—giving the boys the chance to sharpen their playing skills against international competition while fostering strong bonds with their teammates. Recent trips have taken the team to Italy, Spain, Argentina, Uruguay, and France.

    Check back on this page in the spring for rosters, schedules, and more. In the meantime, join us as we look forward to another action-packed season in 2018!
