Alum writes: Rugby team a credit to Bates sportsmanship

Dear Editor,

My wife and I were among the many who attended Parents' Weekend recently. We witnessed a most wonderful game of rugby, more so since it was played under the worst possible conditions.

To see these fine athletes exhausted, bespattered with mud, and fighting tears at having narrowly lost to their archrival was a sight to behold, the memory of which will stay with me for a long time. The sportsmanship displayed by the rugby team during that crucial game was a credit to Bates College.
