While most might have been in focused on the home football game here at Angelo State University, Rambelle Rugby was representing ASU in a different light.

For the first time ever the Rambelles were competing in the 15s division which is "the largest and most recognized division in rugby" on Saturday, Sept. 15

Traveling to Lubbock, TX, to challenge the Texas Tech Women’s Rugby, the Rambelles Rugby team came out with a dominant display of power and fundamental knowledge and capabilities.

The team came out on top with an impressive win 43-0.

The team, which is almost evenly divided between first year rookies and seasoned veterans, formed together and performed on this day.

It would be hard pressed to single out any one individual as a rookie. All members preformed at a level expected from top tier seniors.

Freshman and first year player Drew Bratton stated "our first game felt incredible to be a part of, such a great team filled with great people and it meant a slot to me because that win was the start of my rugby experience."

The common theme among the veteran players was pride.

President Amanda Steffins said it best. "I am proud, impressed and excited. Our girls played hard, vets and rookies," Steffins said.

"I see what we are capable of and I want to get us there."

Steffins said day by day they get better and better.

Be on the lookout for updates on their next game against top contender Oklahoma University.

The Rambelles look forward to playing their first home game which is to be determined.
