Life University is a private university located in Marietta, GA. The university has a long and storied tradition involving rugby. However, it wasn’t until recently that the university began competing in the college competition. In 2010-11 Life University entered the inaugural competition of the CPD for their first official, full year, of competition. The team finished with a 14-2 record in their first year bowing out in the first round of the playoffs.

The 2011-12 season has gotten off to a solid start for this young group of student-athletes from Georgia. After qualifying with a hard fought victory over Arkansas St in the conference qualifiers, Life University earned a spot in the first Collegiate Sevens National Championships. With 6 victories in 2 days,including another close semi final win over ArkansasState and an over time thriller vs Central Washington in the championship match, the Running Eagles from Life University walked away with the National Title.

In February the team traveled to Las Vegas for the prestigious Las Vegas Invitational with the aim of earning a trip to the CRC. In Las Vegas the team had to win 7 matches in 3 days, including a hard fought victory over 2010 CRC Champions, Utah, in the finals.
