RNE Names Women's All Conference Teams
Colleges - Women's College

Rugby Northeast has named their Women’s 15s 1st and 2nd Team All-Conference selections. Players were selected primarily based on coaches’ recommendations throughout the year and reflect the best players in the conference at their respective positions.

Stonehill College, which has taken the top seed to RNE playoffs this weekend, has the most representatives with four players making the top 15 – three forwards and outside center. St. Michael’s, which played in a thrilling 9-5 loss against Stonehill two weekends ago, follows with three players. But with the introduction of the 2nd Team, which is new in 2012 and replaces the eight-player Honorable Mentions, St. Michael’s takes the overall lead, adding five players.

Players will be honored at an award ceremony at half-time of the Rugby Northeast Women’s Championship on Saturday, November 17.
