Air Force place 4th at the Las Vegas Invitational

The Zoomies rugby men's team placed 4th overall in the collegiate division at the Las Vegas Invitational in March.  Our Zoomies swept the pool play beating Utah Valley 29-7, Montana State 31-5, and Pittsburg State 28-0.

In the quarterfinal knockout rounds, Air Force beat Utah State 22-12 before falling to Lindenwood-Belleville 24-14 in the semi-finals.

For the final match of the tournament, Air Force played the University of Utah for 3rd place overall but chose to play all the players that hadn't had a chance to get on the field.  Even with the younger squad, Air Force almost pulled off the upset losing only 21-29.

All told, it was a great weekend for the Zoomies as we try our hats at Sevens following a difficult fall campaign of 15s.  Hopefully, the ball handling and solo tackling skills of the sevens game will transfer to better play next fall.
