University of Wisconsin-Madison's Jenny Glaser spent the last week in Colorado pushing her rugby skills to an elite level.
Glaser, one of the UW team captains this fall, accepted an invitation to attend the 2016 USA Rugby Academy Women's Performing Resident Camp Powered by Atavus in Glendale, Colorado.
She was one of 60 players attending the Academy which was coached by Richie Walker (pictured with Glaser), fresh off a plane from the 2016 Summer Olympic in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Walker is also the head coach of the USA Women's 7s Rugby team that finished fifth overall in the Olympic standings in the sport's first competition at the global event.
Players at the Academy also participated in this past weekend's first annual Atavus Elite Women's Sevens Tournament with the USA Rugby Collegiate All-Americans, and the recently-crowned 2016 USA Rugby Club Sevens National Champions Scion Rugby Academy.
This is Glaser's second opportunity to attend a national event in the past year.
She and UW teammate Lizzie Bellis also attended the USA Rugby National All-Star Competition (NASC) camp in Florida in January.
Glaser and Bellis both competed in the NASC Junior All-American camp.
