    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. 

    Last year, Gonzaga Rugby's Varsity Purple team had another outstanding season. The Eagles finished the season with a 14-3 record and captured their eighth consecutive MAVRC title. Other notable wins included winning the Gonzaga Rugby Classic, defeating Xavier on the final play during the regular season, and earning Head Coach Peter Baggetta's 200th win.
