Yes, we all need something to be proud off and without the lossing leadership of PG, FIU's Club Rugby team defeated MTSU to win it's conference and advance to next years championship. FIU is probably going to be the top rated IAA team in that tournament. Here's the story:

Florida International continued the team’s unbeaten run by sweeping Georgia Southern and Middle Tennessee State in the SIRC final four this past weekend, but it wasn’t easy.

And perhaps that was the key victory for FIU as they had not had much trouble throughout the SIRC South season, winning games by an average of 32 points. And it looked to be the same in the semis, as FIU beat Georgia Southern 55-14. Meanwhile, SIRC North winners MTSU beat Central Florida 30-7 to set up the final.

“Our main goal in the semis was to stay as healthy as we could,” said captain and flyhalf Mateo Velazquez. “We took out guys who had niggling injuries, and started their recovery early. And once we got the lead we tried to eat up as much time as we could.”

It was a smart move.

FIU finishes the fall season ranked #20
