Tunde Johnson has been part of the “Tight 5” on the Providence College Women’s Rugby Team since her sophomore year of college. Quick little Rugby lesson: The fifteen players on the field are separated into Backs and Forwards. The Back line usually makes the longer runs while the Forwards participate in the Scrum and make the shorter runs, as well as most tackles. She has adapted herself to adopt a “Forward” mindset, never looking for rest on the field or a reason to give up. Coaches from opposing teams have continuously praised the team for the athleticism of the Forwards. Tunde is a major part of that as you can see her periodically sprinting down the length of the field stealing yards with ease and commanding others out of her way. The middle of the Fall season her Senior Year, Tunde hyperextended her Achilles the last half of the game. Without feeling the pain of the injury, she taped up her cleat and went back on the field. As the girls took home a win, the “Tight 5” lost a vital member. Not only did Tunde continue to attend every single practice (even in the least ideal conditions) her strength would still be felt on the field as she boosted morale from the sidelines. Women’s Rugby at Providence College has recently had trouble enlarging the team. This hasn’t hindered Tunde from giving the team her all she can in her last year, especially when she wasn’t able to physically be there on the field. In the midst of Physical Training, Tunde has strengthened her Achilles and will be playing in all Tournaments this Spring season. A true leader knows when to follow, when to adapt, and knows when their team needs them most. Tunde has paved the way for the future of Women’s Rugby here at PC. She is a true leader.
