Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - 12 February 2019 -  The National Small College Rugby Organization (NSCRO) is proud to announce the selections for the two NSCRO/Penn Mutual Women’s 7’s Select Sides that will compete at the Las Vegas Invitational on March 1-2, 2019.
This is very much a rebuilding year for the program and the two squads include only three players who competed in the program in 2018, plus one player returning from the 2017 squad.
The new players were selected through the online player recommendation process or their participation in the recent NSCRO Women’s 7’s All-Star Championship. The squad will be captained by Brook Hoesing of Wayne State College.
