hiring of Austin Hall, the Norwich women's coach. In June 2007, Hall's position became full-time. In spring 2008, the women returned to USA Rugby's Elite 8 in Albuquerque, N.M. as the third-seeded team. In spring 2007 the women traveled to Sanford, Fla., for the Nationals, placing third. They beat Western Oregon and lost to Iowa St. in the Final Four. In April 2010, the Norwich women were headed back to Sanford, Fla., for the USA Rugby Women Div. II National Sweet Sixteen. Weggler is most proud after his seven years at helm at Norwich University for bringing both the men's and women's teams to varsity status (fall 2008) as well as assisting Hall and Athletic Director Tony Mariano with Norwich's women's program becoming an emerging NCAA Sport.

This past year Norwich University celebrated its 40 years of rugby. The fall was highlighted by the Cadets second place finish in the NERFU Div. II Men’s Collegiate Rugby League. Its other accomplishments were acquiring the second seed in the Northeast Rugby Union and a 13th national ranking before the playoffs began. At the first round they lost to William Patterson in a thriller 16-15. In the spring of 2011 the Cadets traveled to Ireland for their 40th Anniversary Rugby Tour.

That fall, Norwich captured the New England Rugby Football Union Collegiate Division I Green League Crown. A year later, in fall 2003, the men placed second at the Northeast Rugby Union Championships, qualifying for the USA Rugby National Sweet Sixteen for the first time in school history. That spring they traveled to Colorado Springs, Colo., to compete in the USA Rugby Sweet Sixteen tournament, bowing to Brigham Young University before defeating Texas A&M in the consolation match.

“Cadets Experience Leads Way in 2011-12” By Mark Adkins, Norwich Sports Information Director

Norwich University head coach Bob Weggler is a firm believer in developing players for success. "When the guys report for training camp, we'll be aiming to build on [what we did last year]," said the 11th year mentor. "However, there will be a period of breaking things back down to fundamentals. We need to be strong there first to achieve the goals we've got ahead of us." Fortunately, this year's squad welcomes back several individuals who know the system. The veteran group is guided by co-captains Jaimes Plamondon (Biddeford, Me.) and Josh Nowak (Arlington, Mass.). Both are two-year starters with Nowak being last year's Ruggadillo Award recipient, given annually to player who works at the highest level to represent Norwich Rugby ideals. "They both understand the hard work and dedication it takes to keep Cadets rugby where it's at, especially heading into some even higher-level competition (with additions to the New England Rugby Football Union)," Weggler said. "I'm excited to have them back leading this team." Norwich's supporting cast is also impressive. Junior wing Richard Shear (Sacramento, Calif.) and sophomore scrumhalf Chad Wasson (Newnan, Ga.) lead the attack. They are aided by sophomore Johann Pretorius (Derry, N.H.) and junior Chris Hein (Baltimore, Md.). Plamondon and Nowak are in that mix as well, in addition to playing key roles on defense, according to Weggler. "It's good to have a core like this," he said. "They were all part of last year's conference runner-up finish and strong appearance in the national tournament. However, I know they want to achieve more. They each came to me after the season and made a commitment to do so. "We'll need that [level of commitment]) with the schedule we have," Weggler added. "Adding Holy Cross and playing teams like Boston University, New Hampshire, Vermont and so forth will test us. I am looking forward to seeing how we prepare during training camp." Norwich opens the season with its annual Ma-
