BUENA VISTA, Va. — Southern Virginia University rugby head coach David Smyth today announced the program's inaugural 2019 fall season schedule.
"We are excited to get underway with our inaugural rugby season," said Smyth. "We have some great young men coming into the program who will help lay a solid foundation. We look to create a competitive program that will work hard in the classroom and on the rugby field. I anticipate the first year to be full of excitement and challenges; we will learn from our experiences and become better from those challenges."
Southern Virginia will be members in the Cardinals Collegiate Rugby Conference.
The Knights kick off their inaugural season at home in a crosstown clash against the Washington and Lee University Generals on Sept. 14.
Southern Virginia will then continue their three-game home stretch in the fall with a matchup against the Northern Virginia Griffins Sept. 28 and William and Mary University on Oct. 5.
The team will then hit the road for three games, starting with Christendom College on Oct. 12 followed by games against both Emory and Henry College and Duke University on Oct. 19 and Nov. 2.
The Knights conclude their fall season with postseason play beginning on Nov. 9.
