The Rhinos, Oberlin’s women and trans rugby team, returned from their first spring tournament on Saturday covered in mud and bruises but happy to have finally put their practices to good use in a proper scrum. In their first of three tournaments in their spring season, the Rhinos faced tough competition in Tiffin University and Ohio Wesleyan University, coming away with losses across the board. However, sophomore Leah Cohen said that winning wasn’t the goal this weekend, it was for the team to have the chance to play together outside for the first time this semester and test their skills. “We had a really great time,” Cohen said. “We played well as a team, and it felt like everyone really wanted to be...
