UMWRFC players attend high performance camp!
The University of Michigan Women’s Rugby team recently sent two players to Greeley Colorado for a high performance camp in the Olympic 7s pathway. Megan Melton (‘17) and Alena Olsen (‘18) were two of the top twenty college 7s players in America invited to the August National All-Star Competition (NASC) hosted by USA Rugby.
The camp featured two teams composed of ten players each that competed against each other in a six game series over 6 days. The NASC event was meant to simulate the demands of international competition so players can experience the Olympic environment. Both players represented the University of Michigan of well with a strong performance over the entire week including both of them opening the series with the first two tries.
The University of Michigan Women’s Rugby Football Club start their season Monday August 24th.
