We are eagerly anticipating our first game of the season in St. Catherines vs Brock University which kicks off in three short hours. The women's rugby team has been working extremely hard this week and is looking forward to playing a game with meaningful results.
The team received a boost this week after being ranked #10 in the country in the CIS Coaches Poll pre-season rankings. See the article at http://english.cis-sic.ca/top_10_releases/2010-11/20100907-top10-2.
The team has added some new talent this year. First year players who are dressing today are: Taylor White (prop), Kayla Roote (back row), Amanda Djurickovic (prop), Sonja Moroz (wing) and Natalie Poirier (centre and sister of co-captain Jocelyn Poirier). First year Gaels and four year vets from St. FX X-Women and the Alberta Pandas respectively are Ash Ward (8) and Melaina Weiss (L).
We look forward to sharing our journey with you this season!
All the Best,
