We’re here with a look at the players in women’s DI college rugby who stood out. 

Here are our Gamebreakers for the weekend of September 18:

Maddie Hughes, Queens University Charlotte

A freshman out of Myers Park HS in North Carolina, Hughes scored four tries as Queens shut out Navy.

Emma Farnan, University of Notre Dame

In a game where the Fighting Irish were expected to get rolled over, they fought bravel and Farnan’s ability to make ground, hit tackles, and keep her teammates engaged was crucial.

Lauren Madalian, West Chester

In the Rams’ win over Colgate, Madalian scored four tries.

Naomi Colin and Kaylee Cargile  Army

The two locks were massive for Army in a game where they pushed Dartmouth throughout. Colin unleashed some surprising open-field skills, but it was in the lineout and in tight that both truly shone.

Johanna Bandler, Brown

The lock forward helped set the tone for Brown in their victory over Sacred Heart and she also contributed a try.

Aurbey Crist and Addy Ochoa, Davenport

In beating Notre Dame on September 17, this scrumhalf and flyhalf moved the ball with alacrity and marshaled an offense that ultimately scored 66 points.

Kassidy Pothier, AIC

Pothier was perfect on his kicking, hitting all nine of her conversion attempts against Albany.

Sadie McLean, Bowdoin

A sophomore, McLean led Bowdoin with 15 tackles in a shutout win over Colby-Sawyer.

Emily Henrich, Dartmouth

Scoring two tries was the least significant part of Henrich’s day against Army as she led with her work in the breakdown, defense, opportunism, and ball distribution that helped Dartmouth defeat the Black Knights in a back-and-forth match.
