End of Season Banquet & Awards

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


At this year’s Awards Banquet, the team got together their potluck dinner and put on their best outfits to celebrate the end of the Fall season.  As always, a new Executive Board was voted in to be trained for their positions next fall, and the latest set of awards were handed out to the players who the team thought were most deserving.  Of course, no one left without some sort of recognition – everyone gets a paper plate award.

This year’s award winners were all thrilled to be recognized.  The honors this year went out to:

Most Valuable Player – Kelsea Miller (#9)
Most Valuable Forward – Carissa Shetrone (Captain, #7)
Most Valuable Back – Alex DeMasi (Captain, #10/15)
Leopard of the Year – Carissa Shetrone & Alex DeMasi
16th Player – Madison Holland (#6)
Rookie of the Year – Savannah “Guinea” Hotaling (#1)
Most Improved Back – Maria “Gigs” Giraldo (#12)
Most Improved Forward – Brianna “Glow Worm” Lee (#2)
Cub of the Year – Anne Harney (sub prop)
Coach’s Award – Leti Santa (#4)

Congratulations to the new EBoard for 2015/16! These ladies are going to be running the team in just a few months, and their dedication to WIT Women’s Rugby is already obvious, whether they’re returning to the EBoard for another year, or are brand new to their positions.

President – Brianna “Glow Worm” Lee
Vice President – Savannah “Guinea” Hotaling
Match Secretary – Annie “Orphan” Yonker
Social Chair – Madison Holland
Recruiting Chair – Maria “Gigs” Giraldo

Wentworth Women Finish Second in CCRC

Wentworth’s cold, rainy, 9am game in Newport, RI versus Salve Regina ended the season with one last win.  As of that game, WIT Women are done with the season and placed second in the Colonial Coast Rugby Conference. Rookie wing Maggie “Roadkill” Cameron scored her first try, scrumhalf Kelsea Miller scored a hat trick, inside center Maria “Gigs” Giraldo drove two tries in, and flyhalf Alex DeMasi ended the game with one last try.  Prop Leti Santa completed two conversion kicks in the windy weather, bringing the final score to 39-10.

WIT Women 2-0 for the Season!

After going on the road to Beverly, MA to beat Endicott in our season opener 20-5, WIT Women’s Rugby  traveled to Plymouth State to win their second match in a row.

The game started off slow on the Wentworth side, allowing a try from Plymouth early in the first half.  After that, WIT woke up and only allowed one more try from Plymouth for the rest of the match.  Tries were scored by rookie wing Nora Jerome (who made an outstanding showing, starting in her first match ever), senior scrumhalf Kelsea Miller, and senior flanker and forwards captain Carissa Shetrone.  Leti Santa (prop) put points on the board with multiple penalty kicks and conversions.

The final score for the match was 30-10.
