We went the whole year undefeated and were ranked No1 in the Nation the whole year. Had a great game against No. 2 BYU, beating them in regular season. Had a tour organized to Scotland in preparation for the final 4, but the senior management at USAFA veto'd the trip last second (literally) so we landed up going to Scottsdale AZ. Played men's teams there and won all of them.

We won regionals, and sweet 16. We were winning comfortably against Cal Poly SLO 35 to 18 with 10 mins left, but lost through a passage of play that was unbelievable, mostly in luck for Cal Poly. After the game the coaching staff approached a stunned Coach and declared there was absolutely nothing he could have done as a coach to prevent that from happening. Drop kicks hitting the cross bar and literally falling over, kicks that lead to try's that had bounces that had never before been seen.

Coach Stephen was voted one of the Eastern Rockies all Star coaches and was in charge of the team with Rich (last name?) from Wyoming. 13-14 of the Eastern Rockies team consisted of USAFA guys. We won the all star tournament going undefeated.

In the words of Coach Stephen: "Looking back at the USAFA experience, it was truly an honor to coach these kids. Having seen Army, Navy, etc, the USAFA boys in every sense were the cream of the crop."

We were supposed to go to Scotland, everything was set-up, uniforms were already ordered, etc. A week or two out, BG Weida, the Commandant, squashed the overseas travel. So, we regrouped and went down to Scottsdale, AZ! These images are from the first match, right before we headed south. The jerseys for that trip displayed the logo the team had been using since 2001-2002 and was also the first jersey to feature the ZRFC logo (which Tom Beers designed in 2003)

Here are some images of what we wore on the 2004 Spring Break trip
