St. Joseph's University II
St. Joes will take 2 sides to Bermuda this spring. Hawks Rugby plays in the Keystone Conference. The Hawks won the Keystone Conference in 15-a-side in the fall of 2016. We all know that the depth of the squad will advance as Coach Dan Yarusso enhances the program.
St Joe's covered a lot of miles in the spring of 2015. They traveled to Bermuda for the Ariel Re Bermuda 7s, finished third in the Keystone 7s series, won the Plate at the West Chester 7s on April 16, and will send teams to both the Jesuit Cup tournament at Santa Clara University and the Kutztown 7s on April 23 before heading to URugby Virginia Beach featuring the ACRC7s on April 30.
“St. Joe’s has been good at 7s for years, and it’s their ball movement, kicking skills, and ability to read the field that makes them dangerous,” notes Alex Goff in his 2016 ACRC7s preview.
The Hawks finished first in the KRC East Division in Fall 2015, falling in the playoffs to eventual conference 15s champs JMU.
The Hawks finished first in the KRC eastern division in Fall 2014, falling to west division champs West Virginia University in the title game to finish second in the league. The Hawks are coached by Dan Yarusso.
