Ruggerfest 1997 Program

[Photo from the Ruggerfest Program. Text reads: “The Maryland Stingers are the 1996 Potomac Union Champs. In their first appearance in the National Championships in 1996, the Stingers finished fourth in the country and are looking forward to the chance to improve their standing this year. Originally started in the mid- to late seventies at the University of Maryland, the Stingers have a long tradition of good rugby and good fun! The Stingers are currently coached by Kip Desch, who is also the assistance coach of the Maryland Exiles and the American University WRFC. This year’s captain is Eagle flyhalf Jos Bergmann.”]

1986:

July:
Maryland Stingers upset FSU (Candi Orsini, Cathy Flores, etc..)at the 12th annual 1986 Cape Fear 7’s tournament in the women’s final. I truly believe this helped to catapult Maryland into the elite level of 7’s currently enjoyed by the Stingers. Members of that 1986 team (if I can rememebr….I DO have the video of that fantastic final) were Marti Watts, Jami Jordan, Krista McFarren, MB Maher, Lisa Schofield, Jodi Fuller, Nina Gowl, Karla Hoffman, Donna Hylton (NOVA), and ???. I don’t think FSU 7’s had EVER been beaten by anybody up to this point. That’s the biggest thrill of my career as a Stinger ! (besides Pam Heimann’s hottub) [contibuted by MB Maher]
