  • Rugby - Varsity Purple

    2017 - 2018
    Head Coach: Peter Baggetta

    Gonzaga is represented on the rugby field by three teams - Varsity Purple, Varsity Black (developmental varsity team), and Freshman/Sophomore teams. Gonzaga Rugby's season begins in late February and runs through mid May. 
     
    This season marks Coach Peter Baggetta's 14th on Eye Street.  During Coach Baggett's tenure, the program has developed into a national powerhouse, winning four National Championships (2014, 2015, 2016, and 2018) and making the final four of the national championship for 12 straight years.
     
    The 2021-22 Eagles look forward to once again playing a national competition across the country, with games planned against nine pre-season nationally ranked Top 25 teams, and a tour to British Cloumbia to play the top two schools in Canada.  We look forward to a great season of competition in the Spring of 2022. On this page, you will find the team's schedule and roster, as well as results after each competition. Go Eagles!!
