On May 19, the first Voronezh Region Rugby Universiade took place in Voronezh. Teams from 5 universities participated in the contest, and our team became the winner. The runners up were teams from Voronezh State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering, Voronezh State University of Engineering Technologies, Voronezh State Agricultural University, and Voronezh State Technical University.
Our team has been training for several years now. Last year we took part in the final of the Student Championship of Russia in Rugby sevens, and took the fourth place at the international youth festival Moscow Games 2015. The team is coached by Ilarion Zmeev and Evgeny Soloviev.
Roman Sabinin from the Faculty of Philology was announced to be the best player of the season.
We are very proud of our team and are glad to congratulate them on their victory!
