Corrine Heavner Chooses to be Challenged

Corrine Heavner can barely remember a time when she wasn’t playing rugby. She had stepped onto the field for the first time when she was four years old and never wanted to take a step away. “I was always drawn to rugby from the very first time I played,” she said.

Season Wrap-Up

Both teams had successful fall seasons on and off the field. The men went undefeated in the Rugby East Conference, retaining their championship and securing home field for the first round of the playoffs. The women won their 5th B1G Championship in a row and played one of their most competitive fall schedules to date. Through all of this, many of our student athletes continue to support the efforts of THON, in addition to a number of other community service events.

While the teams celebrated their individual league championships, both the men and women saw competitive losses this fall: the men versus Navy and Life University and the women versus Dartmouth, Quinnipiac and Lindenwood University. The teams took away invaluable lessons from these losses and are looking forward to displaying their growth in the spring 15s National playoffs and on the 7s field through May and June.
