Janiya Wilson has signed to play collegiate rugby at Newberry College.

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

"God made a way and opened a new path," Wilson said of her commitment in an Instagram post. "I'm excited to be a part of something so wonderful, and I'm excited to start this new chapter in my life and proceeding my athletic career...100% committed!"

Wilson 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, Wilson will be a leader in solidifying Newberry as a rugby powerhouse.

We look forward to seeing her rugby career continue.
