is our sad duty to announce the death of former Cagers President
and long-time fan Glenys Manfre on November 29, 2017, following following a lengthy illness. Please
read this tribute to Glenys provided by her dear friend, our Cagers President, Kathy Duff. There was a celebration of life memorial for Glenys on Jan. 14 in Kirkpatrick Chapel on the campus of Rutgers University, that included the reading of heartfelt letters from current and former players and others important in her life.

Rutgers Women’s Basketball team hit the floor at the RAC with lots of new faces and some returning favorites for the 2017-18 season. And, as always, the Cagers were there to cheer on our favorite team – at home AND on the road. The team reminds us how much they appreciate their fans and feel energized by our support.
RU completed its season 20-12 overall and 7-9 in B1G 10 play, beating Purdue in the 2nd round of the B!G 10 Tournament before losing to eventual champion Ohio State in the quarter finals. The team was not invited to the NCAA Tournament despite success against several Tournament teams, and RU declined to participate in the WNIT, which it won in 2014. With play ended, the Cagers look back on the team's vastly improved record - 14 more wins this season than in the previous campaign - and look forward to welcoming the 2018-19 squad in the fall. Stay tuned!
Here are some Cager highlights: Following our last Huddle of the season, we watched as Rutgers honored departing seniors Kathleen Fitzpatrick, Nigia Green, Jazlyn Rollins and Tyler Scaife prior to the Iowa game. Special framed jerseys were presented to the players and framed photos of the senior managers with Coach C. Vivian Stringer were also presented by the Cagers Club.
