Competitive rugby started in 2003 being members of the Great Plains Rugby Union. Out of the last 3 years, WSC has advanced twice to the "Sweet 16/Elite 8" weekend of National Playoffs in the 300 team NSCRO Division. We were just 2 points away from going for our 3rd trip, and hoping new recruits can get us back to Elite 8, and to the Final 4/Championships.
