Student Playing on National Rugby Team

February 11, 2008 - Campus Bulletin

Guelph student Michelle Joslin was named to the Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) women's rugby squad for the 2008 Federation International du Sport World University sevens rugby championships taking place July 16 to 19 in Cordoba, Spain.

Sevens rugby involve seven instead of 15 players on the field and the games are shorter than standard rugby games.

The CIS squad was recently announced and was chosen based on performances at a competitive training camp held in Ottawa the first week of January. The camp involves the finest young rugby players in the CIS.

Just this past weekend Joslin and her fellow CIS team members, placed fourth in a tournament in San Diego, Calif. The national women's sevens team finished 2nd in the weekend tournament and included U of G alumnus Maria Gallo.
