The Palmer College of Chiropractic Rugby Football Club claimed third place overall by beating the Boston Irish Wolfhounds 50-14 in the consolation round of the USA Men’s Division 1 Rugby Championship in Glendale, Colorado, on Sunday, June 5. This is the first time Palmer has finished higher than fourth place in the USA Men’s Division 1 national tournament.
The Life University Running Eagles rugby team beat Boston 27-23 on Saturday to clinch a berth in the Rugby Super League National Championship game on May 21st. Life University will host the championship game on its campus in Marietta versus San Francisco Golden Gate Rugby Club (SFGG), the 2009 national champions.
Life University, rated by USA Rugby as the top rugby program in the country, recently hosted a four-day intensive rugby camp for high school students. Sixty-five rising ninth through rising twelfth graders came to the Marietta campus July 13-16, from as far away as Korea to learn technique and strategy from the coaches and players on the Life University team. The camp sold out so quickly, that Life is planning to have at least two camps sessions in the summer of 2011.
Over the June 5-6 weekend, Life University reached the final four of the Division 1 Men’s Rugby Championship. After losing by three points in the semifinals to eventual national champions, Las Vegas, Life University regrouped and dominated Palmer College 61-17 in the consolation game.
