Elena Jimenez has signed to play collegiate rugby at Newberry College.

"Newberry Women's Rugby is excited to announce the signing of Elena Jimenez for Fall 2022!" the college said in a Facebook post. "Welcome to the Wolf Pack!"

"Super blessed to announce that I will be proceeding my academic and athletic career at Newberry College," Jimenez said of her commitment in an Instagram post. "I'm so excited to be part of a first year rugby team at Newberry [where] I'm ready to start a new legacy with them. Go Wolves!"

Jimenez will be an important piece to Newberry College's team. After getting approval from the Newberry College Board of Trustees, the team will play its first games ever in the Fall 2022 season with other NCAA Division II schools. Just like her instrumental help in building Columbia Central as a strong Tennessee program, Jimenez will be a leader in solidifying Newberry as a rugby powerhouse.

"Never in my life would I think that a sport like this would give me a life of joy, excitement, and a supportive family," Jimenez continued in another social media post. "Rugby has taught me life lessons more than anything I could ever imagine."

We look forward to seeing her rugby career continue.
