University of South Dakota
The USD Women’s Rugby is a university club sport that competes with teams throughout the Great Plains Region. This team was established in 1998 when the men's rugby was bored and passing time at a freshman orientation fair and decided to put out a sign-up sheet for interested women to play rugby. To their surprise, the women’s sheet had five times the number of names as the men’s by the end of the day. Women's rugby has been going strong at USD ever since.
