Junior Nick Lucido, co-captain of the rugby team has been infatuated with the sport since discovering it on a Nickelodeon cartoon. Destined for athletics, he experimented until he found his perfect match. The club ended its season for the semester on Sunday, November 1 after tying a match with Castleton State College in Vermont.
What is your first memory of playing a sport? What inspired you to play?
T-ball. I was on the Twins. That was the team all the kids that lived in the center of the city played on. Everyone in my family has played sports and always will. It’s not really a choice.
