    Jarie Newby admits she had no idea what rugby was all about before she started playing. However, a chance encounter one day led her to step onto the rugby field and see what it was all about. From there, she never looked back, bonding with teammates, overcoming challenges and making many memories along the way.

    Newby’s journey with the rugby team began in August of 2016, in her freshman year at Western Kentucky University.
