Gladiators fall short of the National final but the Gladiatrix head to the big show

Life West Rugby breaks new ground in Tucson, AZ In only three years of existence, the Life West Rugby program has grown into a burgeoning powerhouse of American Rugby. At the recently USA Rugby National Championships held in Tucson, Arizona the Men’s D1 side advanced to the National Championship Semi-Final against the highly rated Austin Blacks after accounting for Southern California champion, the San Diego Old Aztecs in the quarter final on Saturday 21 May. After a tough and physical encounter, the Life West Gladiators came out on top 31-22. That result led the team to the USA Rugby Western Conference Championship game against the Austin Blacks on Sunday 22 May, and one game away from the National Championship final. After a slow start in searing heat, the Gladiators succumbed to the Austin Blacks side 30-17. Despite the result, Head Coach and Athletics Director, Adriaan Ferris was philosophical when asked about the game that ultimately finished the team’s season. “We will learn from games like this and we will gain experience and continue to grow. To finish in the top four of the National Championship in our first year at D1 level is a huge accomplishment. We have to be excited for the future of our program” said Ferris. The program is powered by regular chiropractic care from Life West’s new Sports Performance Institute. Combine the benefit of having personalized whole food organic supplements from sponsor, Standard Process, the end result is that you can expect to see more appearances of the Gladiators at future National Championships. Life West women’s team head to the Championship game in Denver Whilst the men’s team...
