UO Women’s Rugby


All right girls, bring it in, bring it in. Hands up — Dirty Ducks on three! ALL>>One, two, three — Dirty Ducks! Let’s
go, ladies. Nice, Liddy! Get low! My name is Crystal, I’m a senior here, I play
fullback. I love just being able to get all of my aggression
out in a constructive way. That’s it, driver her back. That was great. She’s going to get to it, she’s going get
to it — no, but she’s going to get to the girl who got to it. My name is Paris Hart, I’m a freshman for
UO. I’m probably injured and won’t be playing
for a little while. I think I broke my rib. Yeah, it happens. Broken ribs, don’t mean
a thing, don’t mean a thing. My name is Nicki Steele. I’m a senior, this
is my fourth year playing rugby, and I’m a flanker. It’s a really physical game, and without the
other 14 girls on the field, I don’t think i’d be able to make it the 80 minutes. So
I play for them. My name is Julia Rettig. I’m from Germany.
I’m an exchange student. I love that it’s very dynamic and athletic.
Not so much violent like the rumors say. But it’s tough game. You have a lot of team
spirit. You have to work with each other in order to score. That’s real nice. CROWD>>Aaahhh! Hip hip hooray, hip hip hooray, hip hip hooray!
Hip hip hooray! It’s really hard. It’s like the hardest sport.
It’s really fun. A little worn out, but I also get the endorphin
rush, so I feel pretty excellent —unstoppable, after a game. That was so much fun! The next day it’s super sore. It’s hard to
walk. Your shoulders hurt. But I feel like every time you’re physically exhausted, mentally
and emotionally you’re exalted.
