UCF Rugby is going to Nationals

The UCF Knights Men's Rugby Club has taken yet another step in its pursuit of a national championship. After finishing the season undefeated and raising the South Independent Rugby Conference trophy with convincing wins over Georgia Tech and Middle Tennessee, we traveled to Knoxville, TN this past weekend with a much bigger goal in mind. No Florida team has ever advanced past the round of 8 so we knew we had our work cut out for us. Carrying the love and support of all of our proud followers, we set out on our journey to take our game to another level. As a team, we are proud to announce that we will be representing the South Region in the Final Four tournament, taking place May 11-12. We accomplished this feat after hard fought battles with Tennessee and Clemson that tested our character and will. Neither game came easy to the Knights but we showed our ability to persevere under stressful conditions, which will undoubtedly help us as we continue on our quest. We want everyone who donated to know that none of this could have been possible without your help and that you have been just as much a part of these wins as any of us. Not letting your hard-earned money go to waste has become a sort of theme for our team. We play each game for our families, our school, and all of you who have thrown a penny into the wishing well to help our dream come true. With your continued support, we hope to take the field against Dartmouth, which will surely be our toughest test yet. However, in order to make it to Bowling Green, Ohio to face the Big Green, we need your help one last time. Anything you can donate will surely help the club, as we need hotels, flights, vans, etc. for the players and coaches. Thank you for all of your continued support and please pass on the word of our cause to anyone who might be interested. You've truly been an inspiration to all of us as we refuse to let you down.

Go Knights!
