No regrets. On the hardest day for Middlebury Rugby in over a year, every member of this team, this family, can look back with no regrets. The boys in blue gave their absolute all in a transcendent performance against an incredibly strong and talented Whitewater team. The rainy weather favored a forwards close contact game and the physically larger Whitewater pack took full advantage. Furthermore, the ref was unapologetically strict on the Middlebury team around the ruck, giving out numerous penalties and THREE yellow cards in the first half. Nevertheless, The MCRC put on a phenomenal defensive performance, only allowing one try and that came when they were two men down. Whitewater’s defense must also be credited – this is the first time in years, maybe even a decade, that the Middlebury 1st XV has been stopped from scoring a try.
On any given Sunday these two teams could beat each other – this Sunday was Whitewater’s day. Congratulations to Whitewater and congratulations to Middlebury on an incredible year. The MCRC is still The MCRC!
The MCRC beat the University of Southern Florida by 38 points to 14 to advance to the final four of the Division II Men’s Rugby National Championship. Match report of the USF game will be posted tomorrow.
Middlebury will play the other east coast quarterfinal winner Salisbury in this semi-final game on Saturday, April 30 at 3:15 PM, Founders Field in Pittsburgh, PA. The two west coast teams playing for a spot in the final are UW Whitewater and Sierra College. The final will be played on Sunday at 2 PM at the same venue.

Due to scheduling conflicts two of our spring warm-up games will be kicking off at new times:
The MCRC vs. BU (@ BU) – Saturday, March 20: 7 PM (under the lights)
The MCRC vs. Harvard (@ Harvard) – Saturday, April 3: 10:30 AM (A side); 12 PM (B side)
We hope to see our Boston alumni, family and friends at one or both of these games. We will have MCRC gear for sale and some fun giveaways so come out and support The BLUE as we prepare for the National Championships!
Now you can make an online gift directly to The MCRC at our unique online giving form – no need to wonder where your gift is going exactly – this goes directly to the rugby club account. We need your help to cover travel expenses to Florida and hopefully California for the National Championship playoffs – only 4 games stand between us and an unprecedented 3rd national championship in 4 years BUT it will take a lot of hard work from the boys and the support of our parents, alumni and friends to make it all happen:
Any size gift will go a long way in helping the team and will be greatly appreciated – thank you for your support!
It costs $1,300 to cover the travel costs of each player. Each player is asked to contribute $300 to the trip so for a $1000 you can “Sponsor-A-Blue” and be responsible for one of our team members being able to participate in the National Championships – be it alone or with several friends we hope you will consider “sponsoring-a-blue”.
Big thanks to Middlebury’s development office for setting up this online form for us.
