This past weekend Stanford Rugby hosted the Stanford 10s rookie tournament. Teams from UC Davis, Chico State, Cal and Stanford took part in the event, designed to get rookies from each team playing and learning early in the season.
For Stanford, 23 Rookies got their first taste of rugby action on Steuber field! They learned a lot about the game and had fun doing it. Although all the rookies played some great rugby, a special mention should go to Isis Anderson (’22) who scored a Hat-trick of tries against UC Davis and Izabel “izzy” Jo (’21) for stand-out tireless running and strong defense. Arielle Williams (’22) also showed great versatility during the day switching from back to forward and doing a great job whatever was asked of her.
Thank you to all who came out to support us! We look forward to continuing our learning with a game against Cal Poly Friday night under the lights.
