The Rugby Family

This past year I was welcomed with open arms to the rugby family.  Rugby is a tight knit community with an incredible sense of loyalty, camaraderie and connections.  I have never been a part of a sport where you physical bruise your opponent and after attend social gatherings together.   I was amazed by each athletes willingness and excitement to share their sport with newcomers.  This week the Lady Cavaliers welcomed in a few new members to their National Championship squad.  I was impressed that the veteran high school girls did not shy away from the rugby culture and were immediately volunteering to assist the new athletes.  I am looking forward to continuing to improve my rugby knowledge and watching these young women grow as leaders and players throughout the year.
