Tulane University won the South Independent Rugby Conference championship and is continuing onto DII spring regionals (April 20-21, Little Rock). But the league title was more than a trophy; it was reassurance that the Green Wave in is a good place programatically.
“One of my concerns has always been the sustainability of the program,” said Tulane senior Gwen Leifer, who noted the common collapse of women’s college teams in the region and beyond. “But it’s been really exciting over the past couple of months to see how much support and how much buy-in we have from the younger members of the team, which really shows me how sustainable our team can be in the future. I’m really excited about that.”
