Rambelle Rugby has seen major success with a perfect season.

Their final game this fall was against the University of North Texas Lady Eagles and won with a score of 27-17. Rambelle Rugby has become the new state champions.

This in itself is impressive, but becomes even more so with the knowledge that the team is mostly made up of rookies.

The team will return this spring for another eight games that do not have specific dates yet.

The team has shown they are eager to begin.

They also wanted to thank several people such as Kevin Owens, for being an amazing advisor for them.

They would also like to thank Tara Hart, for taking over as their new advisor.

There is also Kenny Roller and Nate Mckinnerney, for being there for the team when available.

The Rambelles also wanted to thank Ram Rugby for its support and assistance over these past 3 years.

More thanks goes to all of the team’s family, friends and fans who show up to their

games and cheer them on.

"You all mean a lot to us," Aspen Escamilla, speaking for the entire team, has stated, "and we are excited that we got to share a bit of our season with you!"

If asked how they have made it this far, the Rambelle Rugby team would give credit to each of these people; their president, Aspen Escamilla; and more importantly, to each other.

Through the entire season, the good times and the bad times, the women have each done what they could for the entire team.

The sisterhood the whole team developed is only continuing to grow even though this season is over.

Some like Caylee Kidwell and Britney Hobbs would receive injuries that would prevent them from playing in the championship.

However, they remained completely optimistic about their team members as well as the game of rugby.

"I found where I belong and I found my ‘forever friends’ when I joined rugby," Britney Hobbs says. "That’s what I love the most."
