Twenty-four-year-old Kat Roche has a great referee origin story, one that started with attempts to become a better player on a team that leaned more social. That competitive drive has seen the Pennsylvania native chase opportunities across the U.S. and world, and she most recently featured as center ref for the USA Falcons vs. Scion LVI final inside Sam Boyd Stadium. The dream is to one day officiate at a Women’s Rugby World Cup, and in the meantime, Roche has a supportive referee society in Texas and a role model to follow.
