The Univ. South Carolina and Clemson University belong to National Collegiate Rugby (NCR) and compete in the South Atlantic Rugby Conference’s (SARC). Clemson has qualified for NCR’s May Madness 7s in New Orleans (May 28-30) and is contributing two sides to Saturday’s tournament. The Citadel competes in the SARC’s small college division and is also contributing two teams. Coastal Carolina is an NCR member but refrained from league matches in the fall.
