History Day

The Minnesota Valkyries Rugby are hosting an event for our current AND (more importantly) our former members of our club. History Day will be on January 24 at 11am. Location TBD.

We want to learn more about where we came from and we need all our Vintage Valks to help! Plus, getting to know each other will be fun.

Please bring your old photos, videos, and stories to share with us!

More details and a location will emerge in the next month!

Valks Kick Season Off With A Win

The Minnesota Valkyries started out the fall season a great win over the Chicago Women’s Rugby Club this weekend with a score of 38 to 19. Fullback Alyssa Paulson and weak side wing Amy Allen started the game strong, with a try each in the first 15 minutes, both followed up with a converted kick by flyhalf Christy Ringgenberg

Justina DeBruzzi followed Paulson's and Allen’s scores with a try in the later of the first half, once again followed by a converted kick from Ringgenberg. Dominance continued as prop Amy Curtiss scored another try just two minutes later.

DeBruzzi kept the intensity strong with another try early in the second half, followed by another great kick from Ringgenberg. In the middle of the second half, DeBruzzi scored her third try of the game.

The Valks scored a total of 6 tries, awarding the team a bonus point in league play.

The Minnesota Valkyries play against Detroit Women’s Rugby Football Club next Saturday, September 27. Please come and support the Valks in person, or at least in spirit!
