Eyes on the prize
The softball team aren't the only Blazers with national championship aspirations this summer. The Valdosta State club rugby team will play in the National Small College Rugby Organization's 7s national tournament in Philadelphia on Saturday.
Unlike the softball team, a national championship isn't the only thing the VSU club rugby team is playing for; the club rugby team is also playing to cement its future at the university.
Despite experiencing overwhelming success in its short existence, the VSU club rugby team hasn't received the same type of recognition or support as its more well-known counterparts.
Established in 2010 as a club sport at Valdosta State, the club rugby team has traveled to — and won — various tournaments in the Southeast, even hosting the Blazin' 7s Tournament on North Campus the past four years.

Held in check for six innings, the Valdosta State Blazers caught fire just in time Thursday evening.

VSU (46-14) will face the Dixie State at 6:30 p.m. today. The Red Storm beat the Savage Storm 3-2 in Thursday's late game.
