New Utah Women’s Rugby team has huge goals for 2022 season

McCarthey Track and Field is home to one of the University of Utah’s newest athletics teams. It has everything to do with running, but more to do with heavy-hitting.

The University of Utah Women’s Rugby team marked their debut by hosting a tournament in November 2021 against other women’s collegiate teams from across Utah, including Utah Valley University, Weber State University, and Southern Utah University. The Utes marked their debut with a 31-5 win against Weber State.

“The Men’s Rugby team has been around since the 1970s”, said Women’s Head Coach Emily Briggs, “UofU is such a powerhouse. It should’ve had a women’s rugby team a long time ago. I know we could win records easily once we’re established. “
