The 2016 Belle Rugby team is currently undefeated, taking down opponents with ease.

Rugby is known to be a harsh and difficult sport, but for the women of the highly successful Rambelle Rugby club, its a breeze to win. They have demolished teams left and right with their prowess on the field.

The Rambelle Rugby Club has been leading a wildly impressive year. They have competitively beaten teams from universities such as: East Texas Baptist University, Sam Houston State University, the University of Texas at San Antonio and Texas State University.

It was the team’s first win against UTSA as well as their first ever shut-out game against the university with the final score of 60-0.

“We are very rookie based right now, but everyone is stepping up and playing hard and competing at a very high level,” Aspen Escamilla, president of the club, said. 

“I’m grateful to have teammates that are willing to push themselves as hard as they do.”

Even with the accomplishments, the Rambelle Rugby Club members have made sure not to let their accomplishments go over their heads as they are not only acting as a team, but a family. 

“What I observe from the group is a sisterhood that builds them up physically, mentally and emotionally,” Kevin Owens, adviser of the Rambelle Rugby team, said. 

“Every one of those ladies not only provides great leadership to the team, but they lead by example with their attitude and their involvement.” 

They practice on the Intramural Fields on Jackson St. every Monday and Wednesday from 5-7 p.m. and every Tuesday and Thursday from 5-6 p.m., where they encourage anyone to try out the game and join the team.

Those who are interested in joining the team should contact the president through the team’s Instagram account @rambellerugby or through her email at aescamilla6@angelo.edu.

There are two remaining games on the Rambelles’ schedule, both of which will take place at the ASU Intramural Field.

Those who do not want to play the game are still encouraged to watch. Admission is free to anyone and everyone. 

The next game will be against the University of Texas at Dallas and will take place on Oct. 22 at noon. 

The last game will be against the University of North Texas Nov. 12 at 1 p.m.
