Buffalo Women’s Rugby Club turns 15 today! The club was founded in 2004 and played their first game on September 18, 2004. In their first match, Buffalo beat the Pittsburgh Angels. Since that match, Buffalo Women’s Rugby Club has continued to set the standard for competitive rugby in the Buffalo area.
Finishing the 2018-2019 season, Buffalo Women’s Rugby club earned the title of Midwest Conference Champions and competed in the USA Rugby National Championship Series – the best playoff run the club has ever made. Current players are hoping to repeat their success this season with the goal of bringing Buffalo even further into playoff contention.
To say we are proud of our club’s accomplishments over the past 15 years would be an understatement. To celebrate 15 years of a growing rugby community, the current BWRC members invited their alumni network to their game against Akron Rugby Club. Buffalo Women won 70-0 with a supportive alumni group cheering from the sidelines! The club hosted a cookout afterward to continue the celebration.
Happy Anniversary to all of the incredible women who have worn our jersey over the years!
