The Mighty Quahogs Softball Team has become a tradition at RWU law, playing not just in New England, but also at the national tournament held at the University of Virginia each year.
The trip to Charlottesville has a special place in my heart because I am a graduate of UVA, and it was my class that began what has now mushroomed into a huge event, with teams of law students from up and down the east coast competing (and raising money for good causes with the registration fees). https://www.law.virginia.edu/html/news/2014_spr/softball.htm
But this year was even more special because we were able to send not just a team of current RWU students, but also a team of alum Quahogs, in honor of our 20th anniversary as a law school. The current team (Young ‘Hogs) made it through pool play. (Win 21-2 vs. Fordham, Win 11-7 vs. NYU, Loss 9-1 vs. UVA Gray (alumni)), while the alums (Ol ‘Hogs) also had some success, after “shaking off the rust,” losing to Columbia and UVA Blue, but beating Washington & Lee and Boston College.
Here is a picture of both teams (alums in gray - how fitting!) and then a picture of just the Old Timers.
