2002 Spring Men Portal


We had A LOT of players in 02 after getting intramural rugby back in the lineup. As and Bs practiced every day on the field with C and D sides coaching on the hill on their off days. Rugby membership skyrocketed. We had a lot of momentum going into the 2003 National Championship year. Attached is the picture from our year book of the entire team.
