Match Tomorrow vs Kansas State

We begin our 2011 Spring Season tomorrow against K-State in Wichita. The 1st side will kickoff at 1:30pm, the 2nd side match will follow. There is a link below with directions to the pitch if you would like to come support us in preparation for the College Premier League. Selections last night were tight. We have 4 relatively new rugby players getting starts in the first match over a couple of more seasoned players. Zac Givens a former OU football player and track team member starts in the #13 jersey, Richard Immel a former OU wrestler gets the start at 7, Will McWhirter gets the nod at prop and Meaad Muse a transfer student and former football player at Kutztown starts at lock. Promising freshman Matt Long, transfer football player Jerremy Jackson and Matt Koch are all new players competing for spots. Billy Batchlear is another former OU football player who is looking to break into the starting lineup in coming weeks. The competition is stiff for spots as we near our first CPL game. The boys are excited to finally get out and hit someone other than each other.

We are beginning a new tradition tonight and will be having a pregame meal at the clubhouse followed by a brief chalk talk from the coaches and then words from an alumni to the team.
