Today, EWR celebrated the end of an amazing year of rugby and the 8 incredible seniors who will be graduating in two weeks! Thank you to BGraham, Hogan, Koala, Smurf, Jaden, KP, Maddy, and Cash who have each been amazing rugby players, wonderful leaders, and the greatest of friends to this team. Happy Graduation! (Come back soon!)

EWR Love! See you in the Fall!
On Friday, April 4th, EWR made their way up to Maryland for the 48th Annual Cherry Blossom Rugby Tournament! The tournament takes place every year at Rosecroft Raceway, where over 35 teams, both women and men, come to compete.
On Saturday morning, EWR lost to University of Connecticut. Later in the day, EWR competed against Stony Brook University. Though it was a close game, Stony Brook prevailed. On Sunday, EWR lost to Columbia University.
Despite the losses, the talent on Elon’s team was apparent. Backline Player and Scrum Player of the Game both went to rookies, Gisele Nighswander and Amanda Echavarri, respectively. While the rookies played extremely well, it was also a bittersweet moment for EWR’s seniors who were playing their final Cherry Blossom. They surely will be missed.
See you next year, Cherry Blossom!
