Member Erica Legaspi heads to international stage
WAC member Erica Legaspi trains with Philippine national team
Rugby player Erica Legaspi was recently recruited by the Philippine national team to participate in training camp and potentially play rugby 7s at December’s Southeast Asian Games. The daughter of Filipino immigrants, Erica is a dual citizen of the Philippines and the United States. She will travel to Manila in late November and participate in an 11-day high-intensity training camp with the Philippine national team. Erica’s participation in training camp gives her a chance to be selected to compete in the Southeast Asian Games on December 7–8.
“I am so honored to suit up for my motherland and be part of the Philippine rugby revolution,” Erica says. “I look forward to paving the way for girls and women to get out on the pitch and fall in love with the sport.” Erica plays for the WAC women’s rugby team and the Seattle Saracens.
