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.
