This year, your JBU Golden Eagles Rugby team ended the season both undefeated and ranked Top 20 in the nation. Moreover, they also won the Mid-America/Great Plains championship in Wayne, Nebraska. Since they won the regional championship, the team has the opportunity to travel to Los Angeles on April 5th and 6th to compete in the “Sweet 16” playoffs.  They will play two games in California, and if they win, they will head to Rugbytown, Colorado April 26th and 27th for the National Championship.
 
This is where our team needs your help. Since the rugby team is still a club sport, they receive limited financial support from the University.  Basically, they must raise their own support to get to L.A. -— a  total of $19,000.  It will cost them about $750 per player for flights, van rental, food, and lodging. We need alumni, friends and family to partner with the rugby team in order to get them to Los Angeles.a
