Also a good editorial in this week’s Ring Tum Phi on W&L Women’s Rugby by flanker Stockton Bullitt ’12.
The team participated in W&L’s Leadership Development training yesterday afternoon. Led by Burr Datz, the session worked on visualizing, planning together, communicating and looking out for each other. As Burr explained, “…it’s not just about one guy who leads and takes charge, but the willingness of everyone to add input and lead collaboratively…”. Someone summed it up at the conclusion of the session when they said “…when we go out to practice and play, our focus has got to be on rugby and being the best that we can.”
Rugby is expanding at W&L as there has been a stong interest in forming a W&L women’s rugby team. An organizational meeting was held Sunday, September 20 to discuss moving forward. We are looking for individual(s) to assist with coaching the women’s team.
This Saturday, Septmeber 19, W&L Rugby returns to campus for their first league match of the year against University of Richmond. Kick-Off is at Noon on Fuge Field.
