GRR: Lindenwood Women
Lindenwood University flyhalf Richelle Stephens has been named the 2021 MA Sorensen Award-winner as the best women's player in American College Rugby.
Richelle Stephens, who represented the USA in the 2016 Olympics just out of high school, is now a finalist for the MA Sorensen Award as the top women's college rugby player in the USA.
Stephens is a classic flyhalf, a distributor who understands space and uses her running ability, kicking, and passing to exploit it.
There was certainly an inevitability about it all, but inevitability can be its own burden.
The D1 Elite final comes to St. Charles, Mo. and while Lindenwood is a heavy favorite, the Lions would be foolish to take all of that to heart.
