Campus Champion

Lindsey Quinnpresident of SUNY Cortland's women’s rugby club, the Peace Frogs, has helped lead the team to the national semifinals. Next week, 20 members and two coaches will fly to Knoxville, Tennessee to play in the National Collegiate Rugby (NCR) Small College national playoffs on Saturday, Dec. 4 and Sunday, Dec. 5. Lindsey, a senior physical education major and a member of the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC), says playing with the Peace Frogs was great training for a career, maybe as an athletic director. Whatever dream she chases, rugby club sharpened her leadership and coaching skills and taught her love for the game. Follow the team on Instagram and if you want to tune in, the games will be broadcast live on Facebook.
