Six Christendom Crusaders will represent the college as part of the NSCRO Men’s All-Star Rugby Championship, taking place over Memorial Day Weekend in Houston, Texas.
Thomas Audino, Vincent Duhig, Jon Messing, Patrick Newton, Will Arnold, and Nick Cuddeback are all making the trip to Texas for the championship after being named to the Mid-South All-Star Team, one of five regions competing in the championship. Audino and Duhig are attending their second-straight All-Star Championship after being named to the All-Star team last year.
These All-Star selections are the latest in a series of tremendous accomplishments for the Christendom Crusaders in 2018-19. The team fought their way to their first NSCRO 15s National Championship in April, ultimately coming in 2nd place, and will compete for the 7s National Championship in June. The team also finished the year ranked #2 in the nation.
The players can be watched competing live this weekend at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. (CST) on Saturday, May 25, and at 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. (CST) on Sunday, May 26. All games can be watched live here.
