Lindenwood University's Men's Rugby team has displayed a commitment to excellence on the pitch ever since its inagural season kicked off two season ago in the fall of 2011. Even more impresive may be the team's newly found commitment to its community off the pitch.

D1A Rugby playoffs begin April 19, making this Saturday's round of matches the last games of the regular season; and what a slate it is. The Mid-South always produces compelling rugby, the top four teams in California are all in action versus one another, and the West is still up for grabs.

Saint Mary's and Life showed last Saturday why they are the top two teams in college rugby. The Gaels' complete dominance over Cal may just be the best performance of any college team this season, and Life won a truly hard-fought game on the road against No. 3-ranked Arkansas State.

With an opportunity to clinch the Mid-South title at hand this past Saturday, Life University did just that by beating Arkansas State. The victory pushes Life's unbeaten streak to 5-0 on the season, but Arkansas State did not make things easy on the Running Eagles.

To call Saint Mary's 55-31 victory against Cal the team's statement win of the season would be overshadowing a number of the Gael's impressive 80-minute efforts they have put together in the past three months. Still, the 24-point win over its Bay Area rival might be the loudest statement Saint Mary's has made this season.
