Women's Rugby at the White House

The Penn State Women's Rugby Team paid a visit to the White House recently, to be honored as the 2017 National Champions. In attendance was the majority of last year's team, including fifth-year player Fran Schaeffer.

"The experience was very special," Schaeffer says. "It means a lot to represent Penn State Women's Rugby. The sport of rugby and specifically the Penn State program have strongly influenced me, and it meant a lot to be the team that could represent our program at the White House. In addition to last year's national championship, our program has won 11 other national titles. For us, going to the White House also meant representing those other national championship teams and all the women who came through the program before us and worked hard to pave the way for our success."
