Marywood University’s men’s and women’s rugby teams, led by Coach John Gulden, are in their first season of competition. Using a mixture of players with experience and those who walked on, the women’s team has won13 games. The men’s team opened up the season with a 10-man win over Juniata. The Marywood Pacers play Sevens most of the season, with a few tournaments remaining during the spring semester, but both the men’s and women’s rugby teams are already looking forward to learning and gaining additional skills from the Seattle Seawolves.
