“I am a member of a team, and I rely on the team, I defer to it and sacrifice for it, because the team, not the individual, is the ultimate champion.”
Saturday was a beautiful day in terms of both the weather and AUWRFC’s performance! In our first full 80-minute game of the season, we showed an amazing cohesion between players and units, proving our ability to be an incredible team that works together seamlessly. In particular, we got a nice offensive groove going, and greatly improved our defense in just a week of practice. All of our teamwork paid off as we came away with a 52-19 win over Towson! The woman of the match this week is Kelly, who played shut down defense, and stepped up to play flyhalf, even thought it’s not her regular position. Even as we rotated players in and out of the back line, she continued to lead the line with chemistry and continuity throughout the game. Each week of this season, AUWRFC has worked consistently harder, learning lessons from each match, and improving on our weaknesses. Keep up the great work, ladies! Next weekend we look forward to a round robin match with GW and Georgetown, and another day of beautiful AU rugby!
