Women’s Rugby Tee’s
Mount Saint Mary’s University is selling long sleeve tee shirts just in time for holiday gift giving. The shirts target all of women’s rugby- not just a specific team or event- and are a fundraiser to help the team make ends meet in its second-ever competitive season. The tee’s make a great gift for the hard-to-shop-for rugby player or “rugger hugger.” You can order yours here.
