Rugby clubs plan 40th anniversary reunion

CARBONDALE, Ill. -- The time is near to relive memories and connect with old friends for Southern Illinois University Carbondale men’s and women’s rugby clubs.

A 40th anniversary reunion is set for May 3-6 in Carbondale.  The reunion will feature a match between alumni against current student-athletes, a golf outing at Midland Hills Golf Course, and barbecue with the current SIU Carbondale club squads. 

The men’s rugby club began in 1972.  A women’s team formed in the mid-1980s and lasted a few years, before being formed once again in 1996.
