This past weekend our team traveled to Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia for the SIRC Conference Playoff. We played a physical match against UGA Saturday (03.28.15), ultimately ending in a win of 15 to 10. Sunday our team had high hopes for the final match against Emory, a team we’ve played many times before. After 80 minutes of determination, we pulled out a win of 19-5!

We are now headed to the DII National Sweet 16 Championship in Greenville, SC at Furman University from April 10th-12th. Last year the team was invited, but were unable to attend due to lack of funding. This year we plan to show them just who they missed out on! Can I get a Ruck Tide?

Spring Season Matrix Recap

The UA Women’s Rugby Club finished up their regular season play this past weekend with a 49-24 win over Kennesaw State University, and they will begin play-offs March 29th. This was the last home match for the senior class, and they could not be happier with the way the Crimson Tide has played this season. 

President and 4-year member of the club, Caitlin Reilly stated, “Every Sunday when I wake up the sorest that I have even been (since the last Sunday) I ask myself why I keep playing rugby. Then I show up to practice on Monday, tackle my friends and remember. Can’t wait to head to playoffs with you wonderful ladies, and I’m so proud of our team!”

Battleship Invitational Rugby Tournament

-03a2979a203dfc08

 

Congratulations to the UA Women’s Rugby team this weekend at the 35th annual Battleship Rugby Tournament in Mobile, AL.

On day 1, our Crimson Tide ladies walked away with a 44 – 0 win over William Carey and a couple hard-fought losses to Kennesaw State and Florida State.

The Tide finished up the tournament with a solid 37 – 0 win over Spring Hill on Sunday.

With more than half the team being in their first semester, and everyone receiving valuable playing experience at Battleship Park this weekend, the Crimson Tide is “a force to be reckoned with” on the rugby pitch. Great job, ladies!

And RUCK TIDE!!
