Emmitsburg, Md. (August 17, 2017) – Mount St. Mary's University women's rugby Head Coach Farrah Douglas has announced the addition of Maggie Myles as an assistant on the staff for the upcoming 2017 season.
"I am extremely pleased to have Maggie join our staff as we build on the foundation of women's rugby here at the Mount," said Douglas. "Maggie brings not only a wealth of high-level playing experience, but also key insight that will be integral to our transition from club to varsity."
Myles, a recent graduate from Quinnipiac University where she played on the women's rugby team all four years, will begin her first year of coaching this season. As a senior last year, she saw action in all 12 matches while tallying six tries and eight asssits during the season. She added 33 tackles on the year which helped her earn NIRA All-Amercian honors.
Myles holds the Qunnipiac school record for tackles with 174 during her career. She recorded 27 tries, 23 assists, 135 points, and a conversion percentage of .522 (12-23) in 40 games played.
Myles played scrum half for the national women's club 7's champions of the DC Scion during the summer of 2016 and is a native of Emmitsburg, Maryland. Her brother, Tyler, graduated from the Mount in 2016 and played for the men's club rugby team, which is coached by Maggie's father, Jay Myles.
