The Final Four

(Athletics, Class of 2018) Permanent link   All Posts
Friedman Photo Before winter leave, I had the opportunity to do something I never thought I would do…go to the Final 4. The Coast Guard Academy Women’s Rugby team won upsets in the round of 16 and the elite 8 to have a first ever birth in the national championship. Needless to say our entire team was thrilled. During the practice before we left for the Final 4, the Superintendent and Assistant Superintendent came and wished us luck. The next day we boarded the bus for the trip down to South Carolina.

 

After an overnight bus ride that consisted of a lot of movies and restless sleep, we arrived in South Carolina. Friday night we checked in with USA Rugby and got ready for our games over the weekend. Even though we lost both games, we still came out 4th in the nation, a big increase from our ranking as 14th in the nation last season.

 

I am incredibly proud of everything our team has accomplished, and while I didn’t enjoy sleeping on a bus, I hope I get to do it again next season, and come back with a national championship.
