Over spring break, 24 members of the Women’s Rugby Club competed in the 36th annual Shamrock’s Tournament in Savannah, Georgia. Over 2000 rugby players from across the world gathered in Savannah to celebrate the sport and play some good old-fashioned rugby. Mason’s Women’s Rugby Club competed as a Division 2 team in a pool of big Division 1 and Division 2 schools.  Mason placed 3rd in the Women’s Yellow Division, behind Florida State University and the University of Clemson respectively, and played some of the best rugby they have ever played as a team. The ‘lady ruggers’ will continue to build on this grand accomplishment moving forward into the rest of this season and the seasons to come. “Not only did the club grow closer as a family off the field, but they also showed other schools that they can put up a fight and compete at a high level on the field,” stated Jessica Melton, a member of the team . It was a beautiful weekend in Savannah and Women’s Rugby couldn’t have asked for a much better result.
