In 2005/2006, the Rams Women were hit with a terrible plague…..their bodies swelled up, they became irritable and impossible to be around, there was vomiting, nausea and bad skin….this was the year that 6 of our teammates all became pregnant and had babies….this was also known as the Year of the Ram Lamb! It was amazing for so many of us to go through the experience of having our first babies with our teammates there to support us and the even more amazing thing is that a few of those Rams Lambs are currently playing as Rams Jrs today!
2011 was another notable year for the Rams. This was the year Coach Shaun Oosthuizen stepped in and led the Rams to an UNDEFEATED SEASON!!! Shaun sent this message shortly after that season:
“Hi, I found myself being awake at 4 this morning with the thoughts, memories and emotions of last year. I ended up playing through the semi-final against the Hornets and the final against Red Deer. All the emotions from them scoring and taking the lead and in slow-mo the kick off, last 2 scrums, and the penalty with the quick tap, the off loads and us spinning and scoring under the posts. I truly have never felt such a rush and awesomeness at 4 in the morning….just wanted to share that with you!!!!”
Since then, we have had Rams Women playing Varsity level Rugby and representing Canada in both Rugby Union and Rugby League…..and we are so proud of you all!!
