Premier Sports

Playing with Heart & Soul

Mount St. Mary's University Men's Rugby is a premier sport, competing at the D1-AA level in the Chesapeake Collegiate Rugby Conference (CCRC).

About the program

premier-sports---mens-rugby-250.250.jpgThe Mount St. Mary's men's rugby club was established in 1973. Following a National Championship in 2016 in the National Small College Rugby Organization (NSCRO), the Mount moved to DI-AA and the Chesapeake Collegiate Rugby Conference (CCRC).

In its first season, the Mount finished second overall in the conference and qualified for the playoffs. In its second season, the Mount took a rebuilding team with over 20 freshmen and closely missed the playoffs. In 2016, the Mount attended the Collegiate Rugby Championship (CRC) 7s tournament and placed second overall in the Philadelphia division. The following year, the Mount won the Philadelphia division and qualified for the DI bracket in 2018.

Mount rugby also prides itself in community service, having volunteered at children's homes, children's hospitals, and locally with organizations such as The American Red Cross.
