Buffalo Women’s Rugby Club enters the 2019-2020 season with the goal of returning to the Eastern Club Championships! At our annual general meeting, the team discussed plans for the recruitment of new players, game schedule, and updating team equipment and jerseys. Executive Board members were voted on and captains were selected prior to the first Fall 2019 match.

Captains

Jenna Hutzler

Jenna will serve as the Backs Captain for the second year in a row. She has played for Buffalo Women’s Rugby Club for five years, returning to the team after two years with the Charleston Hurricanes and Savannah Shamrock Rugby Clubs.

Her most notable memory from last season was competing at East Coast Championships. “After our match against the Atlanta Harlequins, I left the field with a smile on my face. I thought it was our team’s best effort of the season and I was proud that we ended our season as Midwest Conference Champions. Putting Buffalo Women’s Rugby on the map and making the impact that we did was something I’ll never forget.”

Chelsea Palmer

Chelsea earned the role of Forwards Captain for the second year in a row. It is her fourth year playing for Buffalo Women’s Rugby Club and she is eager to improve her leadership skills this year. Chelsea joined BWRC after playing for The College at Brockport. She is excited about the opportunity and said, “I’m honored to be elected by such a talented and amazing group of women.”
