New Mexico Highlands University’s Vatos rugby club has earned a spot in the Division III college playoffs after a victorious run in the recent regional college tournament in Tucson, Ariz.
Opponents, dates and times will be determined. The national Sweet 16 is slated for Dallas later this spring.
It’s the first nationals bid for the Vatos since 2008.
See Wednesday’s Optic for more on the Vatos.
