Women's Rugby advances to the Sweet 16s
It’s on to the Sweet 16s for the Bloomsburg University women’s rugby club. BU recently defeated Grand Valley State 70-5 in the national tournament Round of 32, hosted on upper campus. The winning effort was started by the defensive line play of Megan Reilly, Emily Eshleman and Erin Duganitz, who had dominating tackles.
Flankers Ericka Heath and Jade Hensinger shut down the attacks off of the scrums with Elizabeth Kendrick bringing constant pressure to Grand Valley State. Newcomer Jessica Spayd stepped up tremendously and brought the intensity the entire game.
Nikki Snyder was once again on fire finding the holes on defense and scoring multiple times with Kelly Mason capitalizing on the conversions. Selena Fernandez came in the second half and boosted the team even more by playing awesome defense and scoring a try. All in all, the rugby coaches said it was the team’s first game where it flowed on defense and played as a whole, “Our younger girls made this a special game for the seniors by making our last home game a senior day. They not only stepped up on the field but also off the field.”
