With the team gearing up for the upcoming National Small College Rugby Organization’s sevens championship, the Vatos of NMHU battled to a title in the Celtics sevens tourney this past weekend in Albuquerque.
The title match was a doozy, with the Vatos outlasting the University of Arizona 22-17.
Arizona is ranked No. 3 among Division I rugby clubs, while Highlands is No. 1 in Division III.
The Vatos scored lopsided shutouts in their first two contests, beating Albuquerque 42-0 and El Paso 52-0.
