CCWRC All Star 7s Team to compete in NSCRO All Star 7s Championships

CCWRC will be putting together an All Star 7s Team to travel to St. Petersburg, FL to play in the NSCRO All Star 7s Championship at Eckerd College January 19-20, 2019.  We are seeking current players from Whitman College, Seattle University, University of Puget Sound, Reed, Lewis & Clark, Western Oregon University, and Southern Oregon University.

For those who do not know what an All Star Team (aka select side team) is, it is a team composed of players from various teams in a rugby conference. Typically they are players who have never played together, unless multiple players from one team are selected, but they have often played against each other. Player experience often ranges from rookie to seasoned veteran. These players are the best of the best and are very adaptable. Still not sure of what an All Star Team is? Think of our 15s and 7s Eagles.

We will hold two to three camps (team selection and practice) prior to our travel to Florida. For those interested in attending our camps (location and date(s) TBA) please email president.ccwrc@gmail.com. Nervous about coming to a camp on your own? Grab a teammate and bring her along!

International Women’s Day

On Thursday, March 8th, the world celebrated International Women’s Day. We may be a day late in posting this to media other than Instagram but we did not forget about all of the strong, relentless, resilient, intelligent, amazing, dynamic, and all around bad **s women who are ccwomensrugby!!

Keep being amazing and play well this weekend for those playing and for those on Spring Break, have fun and be safe!

Player of the Week, Valentine’s Day Edition

Lewis and Clark have named their Player of the Week: Sandra! “This is her 5th semester of rugby, she’s a flanker, and she loves playing because it’s a great outlet to relieve stress and it’s REAL fun. Outside of rugby you can also find her on the soccer field where she displays dangerous talent in goal. MVP of our intramural soccer team?” (credit-@lcwomensrugby)

Who is your player of the week?

This Saturday, EWU will travel to Willamette, Seattle University will travel to Whitman, and UPS will travel to Lewis & Clark, to kick off the first matches of the Spring season!! WOU has a bye this weekend in preparation for their travel match to Seattle University on 2/24. If you’re in the area, get on out there and watch some women’s rugby!!

Player of the Week

Seattle University’s Player of the Week is Hannah! “Not only does Hannah’s warm and playful personality bring fun energy to the team, she also happened to be an incredibly fly half. ‘I’ve played a number of sports growing up, but I stated playing rugby in high school and I have never played a sport with such an all around environment of love and support. It’s a sport and a community that provides women with so much confidence, which I think is so incredibly important, especially at this time in our lives. When I tell people I play rugby I usually get a look of surprise mixed with awe and usually a little fear, and I love that and I love rugby.'” Hannah is Seattle U’s Veep.

Stay tuned for a write-up about this Saturday’s upcoming matches, the first of the spring season!
