Spring Season Practices
We have begun to practice under our regular schedule and times. Practices will be every Tuesday and Thursday from 4:30pm - 6:30pm on Sherman Field (meet at Bellarmine Circle at 4:15pm for rides to the field). In addition, we will be participating in fitness classes every Sunday from 5:00pm to 6:00pm in the Schmidt Fieldhouse. There will be film Wednesday nights at 9:00pm, and a walkthrough on Friday (more details to come). Be there and get fit!
Xavier Men's Rugby continues to celebrate and promote a rich tradition, history, and team unity.
The Xavier Men’s Rugby Football Club has successfully established itself in the Men's DII Great Lakes division. Following a 2011-2012 undefeated regular season, and a trip to the DII Men's playoffs, XURFC continued the tradition of excellence in the 2012-2013 season. The club finished the season with a nearly undefeated record, falling to an undefeated IUP in the final game of the regular season. With a promising Spring season ahead, and a bright future in the Fall, XURFC looks to continue on the path of excellence laid by its forerunners in the hunt for a division title.
Running touch under the lights of the soccer field, slashing through defenders and freezing rain, attending Pre-Season Camp, one cannot help but feel the excitement building in this club. As this ecstatic energy grows within our group, at this moment before we plunge into great new challenges, it seems appropriate to pause and acknowledge where we have been and affirm where we are headed. .
We are faster having started conditioning and practicing before any other team, we are stronger, having worked with Xavier Athletics' strength coach, and we are better all around as we do not work as 15 individuals, but rather as one complete team.
