Team Biography

RPI TRUDGE is excited to have the opportunity to represent the Metro East Region at Nationals! After a tough 2017 season, TRUDGE came into 2018 with new fire, energy and, for the first time in the team’s history, a coach: David Ferraro. Ferraro coached the A team and the brand new B team throughout the spring season at five tournaments and over 40 games, elevating both team strategy and spirit.

TRUDGE was one of the original eight teams to compete at the first College Championships in 1975 at Yale, making it to the final game against Rutgers. Since then, TRUDGE has competed at a national level a number of times, most recently in 2012. TRUDGE alumni have gone on to play for Nationals-caliber club teams, such as the Condors, Metro North and High Five, as well as coach teams around the country, including our sister team, Strut. The legacy of TRUDGE lives on through the team’s current members who are eager to showcase their hard work throughout the season on a national stage.
