Hello everyone! Now that spring has finally been around for a week or so, we are already nearing the end of our spring season. It has been an interesting spring weather wise, but we have still managed to get in some great rugby, here is an overview:
Zons @ Milwaukee (April 13th) — Cancelled due to massive flooding in Milwaukee.
Zons vs. Glendale Raptors (April 20th) - W
Although we had gotten 6+ inches of snow the previous week, we found field space in Faribault, MN and played Glendale on what turned out to be a very nice day. The sun was shining and by the end of the match most of the snow was gone form the field, and we took home a win!
Zons in Des Moines (April 27th) – W
Looking for warmer weather and greener grass, the Zons headed to sunny Iowa to play Des Moines and Palmer. We won both matches and had a great day with our teammates at the clubhouse before heading back home.
Zons vs. Menagerie (May 4th) – W
Amazons finally got a home match on a chilly windy day against the Menagerie following a couple other rugby matches out at Columbia Heights field. The Zons enjoyed being close to home and took a win against the crosstown team.
Zons vs. Valkyries (May 11th) – W
Playing in the women’s showcase game preceding the Men’s Junior All-Americans international match vs. Canada’s U20 Men, the Zons took on the Minnesota Valkyries. In their first meeting for a couple year, both teams played well but the Zons came out victorious. Both teams then joined the rest of the spectators to watch a great international match up at the National Sports Center’s bowl field in Blaine, MN.
This past week, the Twin Cities Amazons had their annual general meeting. At the meeting officers were elected, and other positions appointed to support the growth and success of the Amazons as a whole. The biggest news was the election of alumni Angela Gaare. Angie will be taking up the position in an effort to help players have more of a focus on playing and also to connect with the great network that the Amazons are blessed to have in the Old Girls!
Beyond officers and other appointed positions, Spring schedule was discussed and ideas for more games thrown around. Most games this spring will focus around growing the D2 presence, but there are possible games for the WPL against Glendale and a possible trip to Chicago as a chance to get in some good rugby and also some team bonding.
Practice this spring will start as soon as we can get some field space, and will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays. Spring practice will focus more on fundamentals within forward/back groups than fall season allows and also will center around what we need to get done to bring the Zons back to the WPL final, and give the D2 an edge within the league.
After the meeting, things seem to be shaping up to become a great year for the blue and orange! There is a lot of work ahead, but we have lots of great teammates and we’ll find a way to get everything done together!
