Congratulations to the University of Florida for capturing the Championship title at the 2012 Southeastern Collegiate Rugby Championship. Your determination and hard work will represent our conference well in the USA Rugby Sweet 16 South Regional in two weeks.

I would also like to congratulate our Championship Runner-up, the University of Tennessee for securing the At-Large bid to the USA Rugby Sweet 16 South Regional. Their invitation to compete is a testament to the strength and competitiveness of the Southeastern Collegiate Rugby conference. I wish both teams the best of luck!
