It's been an evenful day! We spent our morning in the warm weather playing Mary Washington at home. This was Katie, Makeda, and Heather's first game as a umd rugger, and we couldn't be prouder of them! Congratulations to Deanna Elmendorf for scoring a try today!!
After the game, Exec delivered on the Giving Day promise and took a dive in to the McKeldin fountain! It was a perfect way to cool us off after a hard game!
At noon, some of us watched the men's team play a round-robin with George Washington and Towson. We love supporting our men's team, especially on a day as beautiful as this one!
We had a great time tonight at Georgetown University for the 7's tournament! We played William and Mary, George Washington, and won our final game against Georgetown. Ruggers Mackenzie Davis, Natalie Lambert, Arden Ireland, and Kimberly Hubscher scored tries today! This was the first 7s experience for many of our ruggers, and we loved playing, watching matches, bonding, and learning new things! Thanks Georgetown for a fun time!
Spring Break doesn't stop us from playing the sport we love! We played Longwood this weekend for a 10's match! Not only was this our first 10s match, it was also the first game for our new rookies! We were so excited to see them play in their first game, and they did great! Mackenzie Davis, Megan O'Brien, and Vanessa Wagener played on Longwood's side, so even if we didn't leave with the win, we're happy that some of our ruggers still got the win for Longwood! We're looking forward to the Georgetown 7's Tournament next Saturday!
Giving Day UMD is the biggest fundraising event of the year-- it's a 24 hour frenzy for clubs and organizations to collect the most amount of donations possible!
This year, we had our most successful Giving Day yet! We raised a total of cover $6,000 and came in first place for amount of donations out of all club sports, for our first time in Giving Day history! This was a huge goal of ours, and we couldn't have accomplished it without the generosity of our players, their families and friends, out alumni, and other supporters of UMDWRFC! The donations we received will allow us to continue growing our family and give us more opportunities to keep playing the sport we love!
We are already pumped to make Giving Day 2020 even better!
Some of our ruggers travelled to Manheim, Pennsylvania for the annual Frostbite 7's Tournament! Unfortunately, Pennsylvania was hit with some snow, so the tournament was cancelled. But our fun wasn't! We spent the day playing in the snow and exploring downtown Manheim before heading back to UMD. Whether playing rugby or making snow angels, we Terps always have a good time together!
