NESC Rugby

A Division II Women's Collegiate Conference

Amherst First to Commit to NESC Rugby for Fall 2012

After a long chain of discussions, Amherst College Women’s Rugby Football Club is the first to sign on for the formation of NESC Rugby, effectively breaking away from its longtime governing body, the NERFU.

With this bold move, Amherst shows its faith in the formation of the NESCRC as a new way of doing things when it comes to women’s rugby.

Head Coach Krystyn Elek sees this as a way to “further legitimize rugby at the collegiate level, give the student-athletes the support they need to thrive, and add to the overall positive experience of everyone involved” in the sport.
