The Gonzaga Rugby program won its 10th straight Mid-Atlantic Varsity Rugby Conference championship last week.  The Eagles are now in Kansas City, MO — with their eyes set on capturing a fourth straight National Championship this weekend.

Gonzaga took on an up-and-coming Good Counsel team in the pouring rain on May 12 in the MAVRC Final on Buchanan Field and came away with a 24-7 win. Gonzaga was smart with the ball and forced Good Counsel to play a long field in the rain. In fact, GC’s lone try came when an errant kick gave Good Counsel the ball in a good attacking position.

“It was a perfect game for us heading into Nationals,” Gonzaga head coach Peter Baggetta said. “They pushed us hard and made us work. They are one of the better defensive teams we have played. They will continue to get better.”
