Wilbraham & Monson eagerly awaits the beginning of its third season - and first as a varsity sport - of Girls' Rugby in 2020.
The program opened with a small schedule during the Spring 2018 season, and interested has steadily progressed. With its global school mission and its international student body, WMA is perfectly positioned to create a strong, enduring rugby program.
''This is like a dream come true. I didn't think it was going to happen, but I wasn't going to stop either because if I couldn't get it for me I wanted it for the girls after me.''
- Celina Rivernider '19, on starting the Girls' Rugby program
It’s hard to believe that the Wilbraham & Monson Academy Rugby program has crossed the 10-year threshold. This spring marks the 11th season of existence for the boys’ team and 10th year as a varsity sport. A girls’ program was established in 2018, and this spring was to mark its first at the varsity level.
