Women's Team 2016-2017

 

About the season 2016-2017

A major event for the women’s team this season was traveling to Ashland, Oregon to play at the NSCRO‘s (National Small College Rugby Organization) Women’s Pacific Coast Championship April 1st and 2nd, 2017. The otters placed 2nd, winning 67-10 over Western Oregon University and losing 10-39 to the Claremont Foxes. 

“As many times with our team, the other teams outsized us in the forwards and outsized in the backs a little bit,” Claremont coach Evan Wollen contrasted his team with both opponents. “But we’re probably faster and play a wider game or more back-focused game – that happened both Saturday and Sunday. The [CSU Monterey Bay] fullback (Sekai Golden) was a dangerous runner and I instructed the team not to kick to her. The one time we did, our fullback rectified her mistake with a nice tackle.”


“Cal State was a little closer than the score line indicated,” Wollen countered. “There were eight or nine minutes before the end of the first half where they were just outside our 22 and trying to score but couldn’t get over. It was 19-0 to us at that point. We essentially cleared it and scored right after, and that broke them a little bit. They’re a well coached team with lots of dangerous athletes … and for them to come as far as they have in a short amount of time is pretty impressive.”

The women’s team organized and hosted a 7s tournament where 8 other teams participated. Claremont Colleges earned first place and it was a successful, great rugby day for everyone. The team aspires to host annual 7s tournaments in the future.
