I just want to let you all know how very proud I am of you. Even though this weekend didn't go the way you wanted it, it sounds like you played hard and gave it your all. I always hold Mary Wash rugby up to a high standard, and this year you surpassed all my expectations. Paula, Shani, and I talk and brag about you guys so much, I am sure James River is sick of hearing about it. Keep your heads high - you dominated the VRU and then wowed everyone with decisive wins during the MARFU playoffs, all while playing the good, clean, hard rugby upon which Mary Wash prides itself.
ps - The James River coaches and players have extended an invitation to anyone on the Mary Wash team to play Ruggerfest with us this coming weekend. So if you are itching for more rugby, we'd love to have you play with us. Let me know.
Hey Ladies, I want to congratulate you all on a great season. I had the opportunity to come to a few games this year and I was so impressed with the way you all played. I think the last game i saw you all the score kepty flip flopping back and forth, tied at half, then you all stormed all over them the second half (i believe that was the game that got you to maryland). It's great games like that that show what Mary Wash Rugby is all about. I'm sure you all played just as hard this weekend and as long as you can say you did then hold your head high. I know Mary Wash Women's Rugby players (and coaches) have a lot of heart and always put their best forth for the team. For all of you graduating this year welcom to the ranks of Mary Wash Rugger Alumni As for the rest of you, I look forward to seeing you this fall Happy Graduation to all you Seniors and run, recruit, run for all you returning players!
I AM SO PROUD OF EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU!!!! You guys worked your butts off this season and made it sooooooo far in the National playoffs - not every team made it as far as you guys did. Maybe this weekend you weren't clicking, but I know that Mary Wash rugby spirit and team uuuunity was ALWAYS there.
And like Catfish said, we are like proud mama's - always talking about the team and how proud we are to say that we are and will forever be a Mary Wash rugger.
If you want to take out some post-playoffs anger out there is the Ruggerfest this weekend- more posts later to come! But I know I would be honored to play with my girls one more time this season! Love you all very VERY much!
