Robb makes an impact for St. Francis Xavier in university rugby finals
Valley product Dani Robb is the first Brentwood College grad to lay claim to a Canadian Interuniversity Sport rugby championship.
The 2011 Brentwood grad helped St. Francis Xavier University of Antigonish, Nova Scotia to the national women’s crown.
Robb was obviously thrilled with the experience of getting a national championship medal wrapped around her neck.
Robb is in her second year at St. Francis Xavier.
She was injured and unable to play for most of the season, but recovered in time to play in the national championships that St. Francis Xavier won in convincing fashion.
Robb, known for her blinding speed that translated well from her track and field days to rugby, was featured on the promotional poster for the St. Francis Xavier women’s rugby program.
