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

Bean SU

Seattle University’s Player of the Week is Bean! “Bean is the captain of our team and our hearts. Ask anyone and they’ll tell you she’s a breathing, smiling, rugging ray of sunshine. This scrumhalf is a super dedicated and inspiring member of our team! ‘One of my favorite parts is how positive playing rugby is for women. I so totally appreciate that the rules aren’t softened or dumbed down for women, and that rugby works with women’s bodies instead of against them!!! It’s a great sport for all body types and skill levels!! I also think it gives women specifically, a lot of confidence…when I first started playing rugby, I was incredibly timid about it, but as I continued to practice, I became a lot more confident in not only my skills, but also myself. All in all, I’ve gotta say that #rugbychangeslives !!! I’m all the better for having played rugby and meeting such an uplifting community that loves to work hard and have FUN!!!!!!!’-Bean” (credit-@seattleuwomensrugby)

Fall Break

F96CD584-2D44-4CEE-9907-75A2A5882776Happy 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 president.ccwrc@gmail.com. You can also post pictures to our Facebook page and tag us @ccwomensrugby #ccwomenrugby on Instagram.

 

 

First Fall Match

This Saturday Western Oregon University, Seattle University, Whitman College, and Willamette University will be traveling to Eastern Washington University to play the fall season’s first round of matches. As numbers were initially thought to be low for some teams prior to the start of the season, the two matches against EWU will see a combined WOU/SU team and a combined Whitman/Willamette team taking on the Banshees.

Teams have been working hard at recruiting thus far and will take the field with rosters totaling more than twenty-three players. With such large rosters we should see some great play on Saturday!

Lewis & Clark College and the University of Puget Sound have a bye weekend due to school break.

Next Saturday, all seven of our CCWRC teams will take the field.

Don’t forget to follow us on Instagram @ccwomensrugby and be sure to share your photos from this weekend including team pictures!
