Women's rugby rebuilds

by Emily Kaufman

     This season, the women's rugby team is going through a period of rebuilding and the players hope to come out strong for the spring semester. Comprised mostly of freshmen, the young team is bursting with enthusiasm and determination to learn the game of rugby.
    Even though we have a lot of new girls this season, our goal is still to get as far as we can in the playoffs, said club president and co-captain Rebecca Oliver.
    With the strong leadership of Oliver and junior captain Roxy Roberts, the team is confident that it will become a top competitor. Already, the girls have a winning record of 2-1.
    In a highly physical battle against Canisius on Saturday, Sept. 29, the Lady Foxes were victorious with a score of 27-10 despite injury and questionable calls.
    Oliver's main goal this season is to improve the team's playing ability and progress the program as a whole. She projects success for the spring semester and next year.
