Club Sports Roundup

The club sports season came to an exciting end with several fun events hosted on Hofstra's campus on Saturday, May 7th. Hofstra Quidditch Club invited five teams to their All-Star Fantasy tournament, in which teams mix up players and combine to compete and ultimately bring the Quidditch community together. Great fun was had by all and Team Purple walked away victorious.

Elsewhere on the north side of campus, Hofstra Men’s Rugby Club held their annual alumni day, welcoming former players back to come and take on the current squad. Youth triumphed over experience on this particular day, with the current squad registering an 85-10 victory.

In other action, Hofstra Club Baseball had a rough day as they traveled to Rutgers, and dropped both games of a doubleheader by scores of 9-1 and 11-1. Costly errors by the Pride and a powerful Scarlet Knights attack were the difference.

Finally, Hofstra Women’s Rugby Club hosted the 7th Annual Jessica Gohring Tournament on Saturday, April 30th at the Hofstra Intramural Rugby Field. Bard, Molloy, LIU Post, and the Brooklyn Rugby Club all participated in the tournament. The Pride performed well, only dropping one contest to eventual champion Molloy.

Thanks for reading all year-have a great summer!
