Wondering what we’ve been up to? Catch up in-person at our Kick Off Mixer on Monday February 16th.
Mudhen Rugby went 3-3 this past Fall season. Tough losses against Budd Bay, Portland, and Tacoma exposed our weaknesses and gave us points of improvement. Wins against Chuckanut, ORSU II, and Eugene displayed backs and forwards working cohesively together to push through to victory. Across the board, veteran and rookie Hens began to gel together, learning from mistakes and continuously improving as a unit.
We ended the season hosting Gonzaga University for a clinic focused on rugby skill development.
The off-season is all about fitness, and as a club that’s gearing up for a competitive spring season, we hope to see all this off-season work pay off.
But we haven’t been able to completely stay away from the pitch this winter. We’ve recently hosted our first of 3 winter college clinics. We’ve partnered up with the women’s rugby clubs at Western Washington University, Eastern Washington University, and University of Washington. Head Coach, John Wooler, has put together a series of demonstrations and drills to develop skills and strategy. It has truly been a pleasure meeting the women of collegiate rugby! We hope to someday see them on the field in a Mudhen jersey.
Additionally, our Kick Off Mixer is on Monday, February 16th from 6-10pm at Twilight Exit. Come join us for a great time with the most entertaining Hens.
This spring season, we’re ready to groove together as we look ahead to some tough competition. Take note of our spring schedule, and we hope to see you at a game:
