Tigers sweep pool, but fall in semi-finals to take third place
The Mizzou 7s team traveled to Kansas for the second time this year, this time along with the other six teams in the Heart of America. Tigers swept their pool as the defense remained strong allowing no points in any of the three games. After losing senior back Colin Kreager to a broken ankle in pool play, the Tigers missed his presence on the field. Here are the results of the day:
vs. Oklahoma State W 57-0
vs. Truman State W 45-0
vs. Kansas W 26-0
vs. Kansas State (semi-final) L 24-17
vs. Kansas (3rd place game) W 24-5
Mizzou sends off three outstanding seniors whose leadership has been an excellent example for Mizzou Rugby. 5th year senior Shane Glascott will graduate with a degree in accounting and start work for KPMG in St. Louis after completing the CPA exam. Senior Colin Kreager will graduate with a degree in strategic communications from the School of Journalism and has plans to travel all over the world immediately after graduation. Connor Fairfax has one more semester to complete in the Nursing program at Mizzou and will be graduating in December of this year. Thank you to these men!
