TIAR Awards, Women's College Team of the Year: Central Washington

Like in the men's award, if we were handing the Women's College Team of the Year award out to the best team it would be Penn State hands down. However, for us there is a lot more than goes into the award than just winning and this year one team stood out to us as making great strides and emerging as a real power in women's rugby: Central Washington.

The Women's Wildcats are a young program having only been around for a couple of years. But in that time the team has assembled an all-star squad that drove all the way to the women's college finals and the final of the College 7s Nationals. Players like Cassidy Meyers and Asinate Serevi could walk on to any team in the country and compete. Full credit goes to Mel Denham who is building a program designed to succeed for years to come. Not only has the team reached into the talent of the Pacific Northwest but they are now drawing in players from all over the country. That's the kind of ambition that is to be commended. With a few more years under their belts they could be the team to challenge Penn State's dominance.
