The Rowan Rugby extended family gathered together on Saturday, May 3, for the Alumni Game and Recruit Signing Day ceremony.
For the first time ever, the active players and alumni were mixed together on the two teams and squared off in a competitive, physical game that featured crunching hits and fast, attacking play. It was a great occasion for the active players to see the alumni in action and measure themselves against the great players of the past. Many of the active players were duly impressed by the toughness and skill exhibited by alumni. It was a great day for all.
Prior to the game, Rowan welcomed their class of 2023 recruits. The pictures of the recruits signing was forced indoors by the rainy weather, but the dry air returned in time for the halftime ceremonies whereby each recruit was individually welcomed by all of the active players and alumni. On hand also were many parents of both alumni and active players.
