Passing the Torch, Blazing the Trail

From USA Rugby via facebook:

"Today is National Girls and Women in Sports Day! Celebrate with USA Rugby and use hashtag #NGWSD on social media. The 2014 theme is "Passing the Torch, Blazing the Trail."

In 1985 the USA Women's Eagles toured Europe, here's an excerpt from the The New York Times (full article here)

"The United States is not known as a rugby-playing nation. But during the last week, an American women's team touring Britain has shown that, as far as the women's game is concerned, the American standard will be difficult to match."

This August, the USA Women's Eagles will compete in the 2014 IRB Women's Rugby World Cup. Thanks to the women and supporters who paved the way for our current and future Eagles!"
