Women’s Rugby Moves

By Suzanne Robicheau | fall 2016

Two stellar contributors to Saint Mary’s women’s rugby are switching roles this year. Assistant coach, Amber Davison, takes over responsibilities as head coach and former head coach, Megan Kinsman, assumes the role of assistant coach. Davison played with the Acadia Axewomen for five years and was a member of Team Atlantic. She continues to play with the Nova Scotia Senior Women’s Keltics. Her coaching experience includes acting head coach for the Nova Scotia U20 Women’s Keltics, assistant coach of Nova Scotia U18 7’s team, and coaching duties at Halifax West High School, as well as the Halifax Rugby Football Club’s mini program.

“Amber is very familiar with the program and the local rugby scene,” says Kevin Downie, Director of Athletics & Recreation at Saint Mary’s. “She has an impressive resume and clearly loves her sport. We are very lucky to have her.”

Campus Notes: “I give because I believe in Saint Mary’s University.”
