2014 Season

Plattsburgh State Men’s Rugby has played a strong fall season. The men ended their regular season 3-1 which gave the team the home field advantage for their first playoff game against SUNY Potsdam. After a close game Plattsburgh won with a score of 24-5 over Potsdam, this win secured the teams place in the UPSCRC championship game against the University of Rochester.   Plattsburgh lost against University of Rochester 32-10 on November 8th.  They then traveled to Saratoga to play Eastern Connecticut State for a second chance to qualify for the championship at New England College.  They played well against Eastern Connecticut but were eventually unsuccessful  losing the game by a score of  32-10.  

Each spring the men’s and women’s rugby teams sponsor the  TNT Rugby Tournament. This tournament is held in memory of two men’s team members who passed away as students Tony Santandrea and Trevor Green and Billy Erwin, a rugby alumnus who died in the World Trade Centers on 9/11. The profits from the tournament are donated to the Tony Santandrea Memorial Scholarship fund through the College Foundation. Also at the Sibley rugby field there are remembrance plaques and trees planted in memory of the players.

All home games are played at the rugby field behind the Sibley parking lot and behind the high rise dorms Wilson and Moffitt.
