GRR: Penn State
When Hope Rogers showed up at her first rugby practice as a sophomore at Chambersburg HS in Pennsylvania, she was a little confused; you see, she had confused rugby and lacrosse, saw a bunch of people chasing a weirdly-shaped ball around with no sticks, and got ready to leave.
It’s a good thing she stayed.
Penn State grad BIanca Dalal is off to join the USA 7s Women's team at the Olympic Training Center.
Dalal, a wing, fullback and scrumhalf with the Nittany Lions, was a big part of the Penn State run to a DI title this spring. She also caught the eye of USA 7s Coach Ric Suggitt during the fall 7s campaign.
Unperturbed by the absence of one of the best young 7s players in the USA, the Penn State Nittany Lions still won the Women's Collegiate Rugby Championships 7s invitational tournament this past weekend, defeating a dogged James Madison in the process.
