Women's Rugby Championship
USAFA women’s rugby is a USA Rugby D1 team competing in the Rocky Mountain Rugby Region which includes Colorado State University, University of Colorado, University of New Mexico, Montana State University and the University of Wyoming. Additionally, the team also plays annually against Army and Navy.
According to Steel Hearts, USAFA women's rugby formed with the first classes of women in 1977. Alan Osur became the first coach and then came back from 1994-2007 to coach for a total of over 16 years. Other memorable coaches who inspired the women include Vern Avery (first national championship) and Amy Rusert. USAFA was the first service academy to establish a women’s rugby team and performance throughout the years has remained strong.
