An article was posted a couple days ago that has UNC ranked number 9 in D1 Collegiate Women’s Rugby! In particular the article said the following about the program here:
“We’re also keeping an eye on North Carolina, which graduated 15 players and will be without Kimber Rozier and Katie Lorenz come matrix season. The Tar Heels are also waiting for starting scrumhalf Hannah Samad and star wing Holly Zoeller to heal up.
“On the upside, we’re currently rostering almost 50 players every weekend,” UNC coach Johnathan Atkeison said. “We’ve got the best recruiting class we’ve had since I’ve been here, and they’re really learning the game and our system quickly. The level of athleticism among the new players is really amazing, and I think that as the season goes one, we’re going to be able to open the game plan up very quickly to take advantage of their speed and power.”
We have a game this weekend against NC State but who knows if everyone will get playing time since we still have 50 people or so on our roster. On the upside, we won our Carolina Invitational Tournament two weekends ago and from that experience learned a lot about our potential and our weaknesses. The pieces are finally coming together and we are hoping to have a good showing this weekend!
