Colby-Sawyer College Rugby Coach Chris Reed Steps Down

December 12, 2013


After 15 years of serving as the Head Coach for the Men's and Women's Rugby teams, Chris Reed has decided to step down so he can spend more time with his family. Chris will remain on campus in his normal full-time role as Director of Annual Giving and still handle much of the Colby-Sawyer Rugby team's administrative tasks behind the scenes.

Since the fall of 1998, Chris Reed has been the driving force behind establishing, building and maintaining rugby teams that the entire Colby-Sawyer campus could be proud to call their own. Over the years Chris has had the support of many student leaders, but Colby-Sawyer Rugby could always count on Coach Reed to do much more than just coach the matches and practices on the pitch. Coach Reed has always had the mindset that rugby is a sport that can help develop deep friendships and bonds that will carry on for a lifetime. Fifteen years of Colby-Sawyer ruggers now have a lifetime of friends that were initiated by rugby at Colby-Sawyer College, thanks to the efforts put forth by Coach Reed.

Coach Reed's combined record stands at 153 wins and 43 losses but everyone surrounding the Colby-Sawyer rugby community could tell you his impact was far deeper than wins and losses. Colby-Sawyer will be forever grateful for the passion and devotion Coach Reed displayed as the Head Rugby Coach for the past 15 years.
