St. Bonaventure University’s Emily Sion has been named to the inaugural National Small College Rugby Organization All-American team.

A political science major from Springville, Sion was one of only four sophomores named to the All-American team for the 2017-18 season.

Sion plays inside center and scored 15 tries this season for the Bonnies.

“Emily is one of the toughest players I’ve ever known and I couldn’t be more proud,” said Bonnies Coach Clarence Picard. “No one challenges me more to be a better coach.”

Sion previously represented the Bonnies in January, playing for the Upstate NY All-Stars at the NSCRO 7s All-Star Championship in St. Petersburg, Fla.
