April 14, 2016

READING, Pa. — Penn State Berks alumni who played for the campus' rugby team will reunite for the first Penn State Berks Alumni vs. Student Rugby Match at 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 23. A series of games will be held, rain or shine, behind the Beaver Community Center on the new artificial-turf athletic field.

Since the establishment of the Penn State Berks Rugby Club in 2004, more than 150 students have played under head coach Bruce Hale and assistant coach Mark Dawson. Many of the members of the 2010 team that won the National Small College Rugby Organization Championship are reuniting for this special event.
