Transcript UP AND AWAY! Members of the UH team lifted up a teammate to help him to reach the ball. Rugby was known for the unusual moves allowed in the game, as well as the lack of padding. Photo by Pin Lim f Calendar of Events UT Dallas Game Rice Game TSU Game Regional tournament ROUGH one of UH's toughest sports Anybody looking for the strongest, most agile and daring athletes need look no further than the UH Rugby Team, a group composed of enthusiastic players in one of the most rough-and-tumble, dog-eat-dog sports in existence. Few other sports go so far in separating the men from the boys, and few colleges across the nation can compete with UHs proud representatives. Rugby is a game of strength, speed, and stamina which is similar to football, but without protective padding or forward passes. Membership in the UH Rugby Team was open to anyone with a desire to learn the sport, especially if they did not mind a great deal of running and hard-hitting tackles. The team practiced twice a week for two hours per practice, and never failed to work up a sweat. All of the hard work was worth it, how- "There is a friendship, almost a brotherhood, which really unites the team." - August Khalil T^J RUGBY TEAM The rugby team gathered after a practice for a team picture. Despite the legendary roughness of the game, it was quite popular with the students. Photo by Pin Lim HOLDING FAST Members of the UT Dallas team tried to take down a UH player while his teammates came to his aid. Rugby required a willingness to jump in and defend a teammate. Photo by Pin Lim 341 Organizations ever. For several years in a row, UH emerged as a powerhouse in the sport. The team competed against other colleges and universities, and made a strong showing this year at the Collegiate National Tournament at Rice University. Perhaps the most uncanny aspect of the Rugby Team was the comraderie and teamwork which bonded the players together. However, those aspects did not just apply to the UH players. The athletes felt a special kinship with one another no matter which school they were from, and it was customary for for the home team to throw a party in honor of the visiting team the day before a match. Rugby is an incredibly rough sport, but its popularity is growing rapidly around the world. The UH Rugby Team represented this burgeoning sport through its success and shows of sportsmanship on and off the field. -Matthew E. Caster EVASIVE ACTION One UH player tried to outma- neuver another during a team practice. Rugby players had to be quick on their feet, agile, and tough in order to triumph.
