Memorable Events

Given an award for the "classiest, most dedicated and most representative of what a rugby team should be" at the Tucson Tournament. However, those who were there, billeted with both the Navy and Army teams, can recall a broken window on the USAFA bus on the way down, a certain zoomie being placed in jail for "inciting a riot, disturbing the peace, and destruction of government property" and an announcement at a local large watering hole after the music stopped of "The USAFA bus is leaving in 30 Minutes" (for which coach Ballinger never lived it down)
