Week of January 12th - 19th, 2020
Last weekend review:
This past Saturday, the NOVA Executive Board met and discussed all things for the spring and future plans for NOVA. NOVA Nation can rest easy knowing there are a group of unsung warriors working behind the scenes to help make NOVA the Premier Club in the Mid-Atlantic. Announcements will be posted in the coming weeks, stay tuned.
Did you know NOVA has it's own basketball team? A true force to be reckoned with, hitting the hard wood in rugby shorts and tanks. This past Sunday was their first game, here's how it went:
NOVA started out slow, falling down 16-2 early. After turning the pressure up in classic rugby fashion, NOVA crawled back and took a 3 point lead thanks to solid play by Aiden Rockwood, Matt Harrison, and Adam The Ageless One. Unfortunately, a great defensive showing in the second half was trumped by a tough shooting night across the board on top of slew of turnovers. NOVA will look to bounce back after a rusty start next Sunday at Noon!
