As the summer heat dies down and the East Coast experiences some strange weather, AU Women’s Rugby looks forward to an exciting fall season. With their first game of the season on September 10th against GW, the women of AUWRFC are getting back on the pitch. This Saturday marks the closure of their out-of-season training and the beginning of the road to the PRU tournament in October and November.
Under the new leadership of captains Maggie Mueller and Stephanie “She-ra” Tietz, as well as new head coach Roland Pratt, AUWRFC hopes to build on a firm foundation of athleticism and skill that have been building throughout the club’s 15 year history. Though having graduated several seniors at the end of last season and missing several players studying abroad, the club is ready to keep learning, play some rugby, and win some games. Make that all of their games.
Though AUWRFC is always looking for new players, over the next few weeks recruitment will continue in earnest through follow up from Student Orientation and Welcome Week Student Club fairs. If you would be interested in joining the team, leave a comment and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible!
