Women’s rugby team captures conference championship
The women’s rugby team captured the Colonial Coast Rugby Conference championship for the first time in program history Nov. 3 with a 63-14 win over Endicott College. Led by a strong group of seasoned veterans, the Seahawks started and finished the championship match with valuable contributions from the entire roster.
Outstanding players for the match were Noelle Bauer ’20 and Keara Pedroso ’21. “Both players played an outstanding game A Saturday alongside the team and really stepped up to help us earn the win,” said Cassidy Chapman ’19, president of the women’s rugby team.
The Seahawks will carry their undefeated record into the National Small College Rugby Organization’s Northeast regional championship this weekend, taking on Franklin Pierce University at Union College in the round of 16.
“I couldn’t be more proud of how far this team has come over the course of my four years at Salve,” Chapman said. “The progress we’ve made as a team in just four years is truly remarkable and I am so honored to have been a part of the history we’ve made this season.”
