A MESSAGE FROM WAYNE STATE RUGBY
An F-4 tornado destroyed the Wayne State Rugby complex in Wayne, Nebr., last weekend.
The five-field, 20-acre facility, not funded by the College or city recreational department, was built on dreams and 11 years of hard work by the Wildcat Rugby Club. In seconds, the Club lost its press box, goalposts, P.A. system and scoreboard. The biggest loss of all came in the form of two 48-foot storage trailers, which took flight in the tornado and were demolished.
The Wayne State women’s rugby team won the National Small College Rugby Organization Championship in 2012.
