From new student orientation to preseason sports practices, the Claremont McKenna College campus was bustling in mid-to-late August with activity as the 2017-18 school year drew closer. The first day of classes was on Tuesday, Aug. 29, and just a few days after that, new seasons began for the majority of Claremont-Mudd-Scripps’ seven fall sports teams.

In the team’s second-straight title match appearance, the Claremont Lions men’s rugby club this year won it all, and captured the National Small College Rugby Organization (NSCRO) national championship. Claremont played a virtually flawless championship match to defeat Tufts (Mass.) University, 65-0, on Sunday, April 30, at Infinity Park in Glendale, Colo.

It is the second national championship for the Claremont Lions men’s rugby club this decade, after a Division II national championship in 2010.
