Monday, November 05, 2018

For the first time in several years, Fairmont State University’s Men’s Rugby team has qualified to attend the National Small College Rugby Organization’s (NSCRO) Central Region Championship.

The team will play at Wisconsin Rugby Sports Complex in Cottage Grove, Wisconsin Nov. 10 and 11. The winner will qualify for the NSCRO National Championship to be held in April. 

This is a great opportunity for the team to represent Fairmont State University and the Falcon Nation. The funds raised will help to offset the costs for the Men’s Rugby team as they travel to compete for a place at the National Championship.
