Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it and to those who don’t, happy fall break. Today is the day where you think about what you’re thankful for. The CCWRC team is thankful for all of our wonderful teams, players, coaches, and support staff. We are also thankful for a terrific fall season and look forward to an amazing spring season.
Today, we would like you to send us pictures of you enjoying delicious food and having fun and/or shenanigans with friends and family at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also post pictures to our Facebook page and tag us @ccwomensrugby #ccwomenrugby on Instagram.
As the title suggests, life is a pitch. You get busy with school, work, and life and things just fall by the way side. However, life is about to get that much easier as this Saturday will be the last two matches of the fall season! Whitman College, a new CCWRC team, will host Seattle University and Lewis & Clark College for a few matches of 10s or possibly 15s. The University of Puget Sound will host their first home match of the season with Western Oregon University, Willamette University, and Eastern Washington University traveling to Tacoma.
It looks like it’ll be a chilly one for everyone this weekend. However, not quite as cold as last Saturday’s match at Seattle U, where the high was somewhere around the low 30s. Last Saturday saw Whitman players combine with Seattle U, Lewis & Clark, as well as UPS to play three 25 minute mini matches of 15s. Willamette combined with WOU to play 15s against Eastern Washington at WOU.
We’re a little sad to see the end of the fall season on the horizon, but are looking forward to some exciting schedule changes for the spring. Teams should be on the lookout for an email regarding the spring schedule prior to its release. We’re so excited with this fall’s schedule and look forward to the spring!
Players of the match for matches on 10/28 and 11/4:

As always, congratulations to all the players of the match and remember, it’s more than how many tackles you make or tries you score. It’s about having heart and soul on the pitch.
