PHILADELPHIA, Pa. — High-level collegiate rugby competition comes to Charlotte, N.C. Nov. 21-22, 2014 with the inaugural American Collegiate Rugby Championships Bowl Series. This series of matches in traditional bowl format brings the very best college rugby teams from around the country to Charlotte’s Rugby Athletic Center, a sports and events venue located just three miles from downtown.
Bowling Green, Ohio. – Mid American Conference power, the Bowling Green Falcons, hosted the eighth ranked Davenport Panthers. The Panthers were off a two game losing streak falling to Penn State and Army, both strong contenders for the Rugby East Conference Championship.
The first Sevens tournament in the United States occurred during a 1959 Thanksgiving holiday Saturday in Manhattan sponsored by the New York RFC. The winner was an M.I.T. “A” team against an M.I.T. “B” squad. Eight teams participated, all from the northeast.
The ranking and match-ups were set after Saturday's pool play at the Virginia Beach Sportsplex. The sun rose over the Atlantic Sunday on twelve teams stocked with talent and grit, each capable of beating any other on any given day. The question left to be decided was who would prove best on this day.
The date is officially set for the 10th Annual Surfside Sevens. Note the time of 7:00am. Of course, we always strive to make it bigger and better than the year before. One thing will remain the same...We'll all be scorin' at the shore like we first did in 2004.
The theme all along in 2012 has been the people. The people that make our sport great. And with 68 teams playing 110 matches with 14 trophies in 9 divisions there were more people at Surfside 2012 than ever before. The crowd estimated at over 1,500 people was treated to some great rugby and lots and lots of rugby fun.
