Rugby team optimistic in defeat

Senior hooker Taylor Bryant, right, attempts to advance the ball as junior prop Lauren Clay supports her while Illinois State University sophomore lock Victoria Leontios runs against her during the women’s rugby club game Saturday at the Upper Arena Fields. Clay, the club’s president, said the team played the hardest of its whole season so far. “I’m just really proud of the girls and proud of the position that we are in today,” she said. SIU lost 27 to 29 against ISU, and the club will play in the Nov. 3 Illinois Chicago Football Rugby Playoffs in Chicago. Nicole Hester-Daily Egyptian
