RUGBY (WOMEN) - COMPETITIVE
The growing nation-wide interest in the sport of women's rugby makes this one of the most exciting and popular sports on the Binghamton University campus. A small group of interested women created and organized this team in 1990. Since then, the team has grown in both popularity and success. They compete against Division I level schools, and over the years have garnered many outstanding accomplishments. In 1998, the BU women's rugby team won the Upstate Championship tournament, as well as placed second in both 1997 and 1999. Throughout its eleven year existence, the club has produced five consecutive undefeated seasons. In 2001, the team excelled to compete in the Northeast Regional Championships. Women's rugby is a highly aggressive sport and is played the same way as men's rugby. Many women who play rugby usually achieve a high level of self-confidence and accomplishment. Although the BU women are passionate about the sport of rugby and winning their games, their primary objective is to have fun. Experience is not necessary. Excitement about the sport is all that is required. There are both A and B teams that compete regularly, thus guaranteeing that everyone on the team will be afforded the opportunity to play in a game. The sport of rugby requires players of all different shapes, sizes and abilities. So you can be sure there will be a place on the team for you. The women's rugby club welcomes anybody to come and practice with us.
