March 31 — DAY SEVEN

Today was our last match of rugby in Europe! We played the Czech B-team, composed of some women from yesterday’s match and some new faces as well. We arrived at the pitch a little early (and when I say “a little”, I mean like 2.75 hours before the game because with Coach Kathy we’re never late for anything!), so we took the extra time to bask in the sun, throw around the rugby ball in bare feet, and just enjoy the beautiful, sunny weather we were given!

The match itself went VERY well! Not only did we shut out the Czechs 42-0, but we were able to give all 26 of our traveling players playing time, and we CRUSHED IT! After some great food and conversations, Uzo (who played #13 during today’s match) received MVP honors for Brown in the closing ceremonies, and we made our way back to the hotel.

It’s really a humbling experience to be able to par-take in an experience such as this—touring Prague, and being able to contest women who are not only playing at the National level, but have also been playing rugby for far longer than we have in our careers! The sense of family and camaraderie is also very prevalent, even with the language barrier. We have one more day to enjoy Prague, and I am beyond excited to soak in all of the culture and beauty the city has to offer!
