We will have a tough schedule this fall. We are opening against Harvard University, the defending Ivy League Champion. After, we will face strong challenges from Dartmouth College and Princeton University and a few others may surprise us as the Ivy League teams in general continue to improve.
But there is real joy and excitement among the players. They are so inspired by the team history and the legacy that has led us to national recognition and varsity status. The players are anxious to prove themselves worthy of that legacy and to win titles. No other team will match the intensity and love that our team is feeling at this moment: the “I would do anything for you” feeling that you only get in rugby. We know our challenges in terms of experience and size but that has NEVER stopped Brown Women’s Rugby before. As you all know it only intensifies our desire to be the strongest, fittest and most impactful team in the Ivy League!
