Every spring, the rugby team enters a tournament the weekend after spring break. Last year, we took part in the beast of the east tourney that is held in Newport RI. The tourney has a total of about 50 between the men’s and women’s teams. Last year, we played against St. Michaels and lost by a try, and then lost to the UMass Amherst’s ( a D1 team) B side team which half of the A side players were playing on. We played an excellent game but fell short in the last few minutes. Last year we struggled to prepare for the tourney because we did not have access to a field to practice due to the snow. This year we plan on going to the tourney again and doing very well. We are all prepared to travel a little bit south to be able to practice on a field. Doing well in this tournament will be a capstone to the great fall season that we have had, and be a great end to my college rugby career.
