With no activity at Hartree Mill at the moment, good news is in short supply on the rugby front but there is one really good piece of news to share this week and one which concerns one of our own, namely Sarah Denholm.

There was much joy in the Denholm household this week – and of course within the club – when it was announced that Sarah was the recipient of the prestigious Captain S.T Garner Award for most outstanding First Year Athlete from Edinburgh University. Short listed with 3 other girls, Sarah came out top!

Many congratulations on this wonderful achievement which is a tribute to Sarah’s hard work and commitment. Sarah is a great ambassador for Biggar RFC and her award received many very positive comments about her as a role model for the younger girls at the club and indeed anyone who is looking to play rugby.

The first link below will take you to the actual announcement of the award while the second is a link to a full length interview with Sarah where she talks about how she got involved in rugby and how her career has progressed alongside her Uni commitments. Well worth a listen!
