Lunney named to DII Women’s Rugby All-American Team

Recently graduated senior Fiona Lunney was named to the USA Rugby DII All American team this past week.  Lunney becomes the 5th player in program history to garner the accolade, joining Laura Fischer and Jen Ward in 2009 and Ashley George and Katie O’Malley in 2011. "It is a real honor to be selected as an All American.” Said Lunney, “I am lucky to have been part of such an amazing team with great coaches and teammates who helped me learn the game and become a better player."

A three year starter at predominately second row, Lunney was a member of 3 teams who made it to the DII Sweet 16, twice appearing in the Final Four.  An accounting major she was named to the Rugby Northeast All-Conference teams in both 15’s and 7’s this past year.  “I’m so proud of Fiona for receiving this great honor,” added Coach Derek Jenesky, “No one deserves it more.  I think back to her as a freshman and the progression she has made to get to this point.  It says a lot about her and the hard work and dedication she has sunk into this team.  We will miss her.”
