Minks Claim National Third Place

April 21, 2015

A great season has concluded with the Minks claiming a National Third Place title for NSCRO.   Tournament match reports forthcoming.

Semi-Final: W&L 15, University of Northern Colorado 32

Third Place: W&L 44, Indiana Purdue Ft. Wayne 5

Couldn’t be more proud of our players for their heart & soul and for their dertmination throughout the season up through the final match.   All Scremaing Minks, current and former,  should be standing tall and smiling on how the club has performed.  Thanks to all players (especially our seniors), all the families and fans who came out for the matches (especially) in Pittsburgh, all our rugby alumni, and to the coaches who continue to give their time.

I’ts a good time to be a Screaming Mink!

Season Kick-Off Brings Victory

March 5, 2015

Match recap: Saturday, February 28:
Geoge Washington University vs. Screaming Minks

{{Lexington, VA}}  The Minks kicked the season off surrounded by 8′ of piled up snow on Wilson field today. With this being the last weekend of W&L Feb. break, we were a little short handed missing about 10-15 players. Our young players stepped-up and lots of players played out of position and did a great job. The opening ten minutes looked like we hadn’t missed a step since last season going up 12-0. After that poor scrums and a lot of penalties keep GWU in the match. It was back and forth through out the match as both teams traded the lead several times. Final score Minks 31 GWU 30. A hardly fought match against a strong Div. II team so good way to start the season. Next a long travel to VMI on March 7. Hopefully the snow wll melt and we can get into a normal practice schedule. Go Minks!!
