Scores & Camps …

Some recent scores and upcoming camps that have passed through the Saturday’s A Rugby Day inbox as of late …

• There’s two Mid-Atlantic RFU 7s camps coming up for senior and collegiate women …

To all interested MARFU Women:
There will be two Open Invite 7s Camps on June 18th and June 25th. These 2 camps are open invite camps for all interested senior and collegiate women. Since MARFU 15s is running into June we are holding two camps…I am hoping all interested players can attend one of the camps. But feel free to attend both if you are available!

These camps are going to be used for MARFU 7s selections but all interested collegiate and senior women are encouraged to attend even if your goal is simply to develop your 7s skills and incease your knowledge of the game.

June 25th Open Camp 1b 10:00am-2pm TBD (DC Area since PAC 7s is on Saturday, June 24th)

Attending one of the camps is highly encouraged if you want to play for MARFU at Cape Fear or at ITTs.

• Dartmouth defeated Yale only a week after narrowly losing to Bulldog women at the Ivy Tournament.

It is not uncommon to see women on the Dartmouth rugby team sporting black eyes while walking around campus.

In Sunday’s match against Yale, the rugby team dominated the Bulldogs 34-12 at Brophy Field.

After the match, Katie Moerlein ’08 was asked about the black eye she acquired.

Moerlein said, nonchalantly, “Oh, I didn’t even realize I had one; it’s probably old anyway.”
