Women’s rugby achieves first home win

This past weekend, John Brown University’s women’s rugby earned their first-ever home victory.

The ladies triumphed over the Tulsa Rugby Club at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 20 at the rugby pitch. The game was won by a score of 17-10, with second center Hannah Lochala scoring twice and fly half Bridget Wray scoring once during regulation. The game was played as a match for the University’s family weekend.

This was the first time the club had played an official game since their first-ever home match on Nov. 14.

“Walking onto that pitch knowing that the time, sweat, friendship and blood that had gone into making this team what it is was an awesome feeling in itself,” Megan LaFond, lock, said. “Also, winning wasn’t too bad, either.”
