“USA Rugby is proud to announce the 2011-12 Women’s Collegiate All-Americans. These student- athletes are recognized as the best collegiate women’s rugby players in the country. There are two lists of All-Americans, Division I and Division II.
The list of Division I All-Americans includes 30 student-athletes from 16 different universities and colleges across the country, and the 22 Division II student-athletes come from 17 different institutions. These 52 individuals were selected from a pool of over 12,000 women’s collegiate rugby players.
Selectors used the fall and spring seasons to develop pools of players recommended for All-American recognition. The Collegiate All-Star Tournament and the Collegiate National Championships were used by the Collegiate All-American Coaches, Martha Daines and Assistant Coach Sue Whitwell, along with Women’s National Team Coach Pete Steinberg, and the Under-20 Coaches, Danielle Miller and Assistant Austin Hall, to refine the pool into the final list of top players as listed below.
