Brock went a perfect 3-0 on day one to clinch first place overall in their pool. Hunninck scored two tries and added a convert in the wins.
To open the tournament, Brock defeated Stamford University 19-7, followed by a 25-7 win over the University of British Columbia. In their third pool play game, Brock defeated Notre Dame 19-5.
Following the conclusion of the OUA rugby season, Brock head coach Peter Hughes had this to say about Hunninck,
“Liz Hunninck, in her second year with the program, showed tremendous improvement on her defense this season while continuing to show her speed on the offensive side as well,” said Hughes about the Chatham resident, who is studying Child and Youth Studies at Brock. “Her high energy and positive attitude is a great addition.”
Brock continues their play Friday in the Las Vegas Rugby 7s Tournament. Chatham’s Jaleesa Russell is also a member of the Brock Women’s Rugby team.
