Cagers Club - Rutgers Women's Basketball Fan Club

Rutgers Women's Basketball Official Booster Club

 
Welcome to the Cagers Club.  We are "the team behind the team," the official fan club of Rutgers Women's Basketball. Our website contains information about membership, events, road trips, news and other information to enhance the fan experience for supporters of Rutgers Women's Basketball. 

Rutgers Women’s Basketball team will hit the floor at the RAC with lots of new faces and some returning favorites for the 2018-19 season.  RU opens at home against St. Francis of PA on November 6 and continues at the RAC for a Nov. 9 game vs. Stony Brook and a Nov. 12 game against Central Connecticut State.  Hall of Fame Head Coach C. Vivian Stringer needs just 3 wins to reach the milestone of 1000 in her career, so be at the Nov. 12 contest just in case.  You can get a sneak preview of this year's team, along with the men's team, on October 12 at MidKnight Madness at the College Avenue Gym ("the Barn").  Details will be announced.  See the full schedule on the Scarlet Knights website: https://scarletknights.com/schedule.aspx?path=wwball


As always, the Cagers will be 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.  


Looking back to 2017-18, 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.

At the Cagers Huddle before the Iowa game, the Cagers honored several volunteers with Cagers Club Service Awards and recognized outgoing President Kathy Duff for her wonderful two terms as president.  See our News Section for information on the winners.  Cagers again sold 50-50s again this year, not only at women's basketball games, but at men's games and wrestling matches.  Volunteers received a free ticket to the two latter events.  Our efforts support all of Rutgers Athletics, not just women's basketball.

We also want to point out two important notes for Cagers. One is the importance of adherence to all NCAA rules related to Compliance. To learn more, please review this information, or contact Kristina Minor at kminor@scarletknights.com. We have also instituted a Code of Ethics to make sure our fans behave appropriately at all times and do not interfere with the team, the staff or the compliance rules.

The Cagers Club officers for 2018-2020 are President Bob Manfre, Vice President Nancy Foulks, Treasurer Nancy Young, Recording Secretary Janice Cancro and Corresponding Secretary Kathy Duff, our immediate Past President.  We thank Kathy for her four years of leadership and wish the new officers continued success. 

Our audit for the fiscal year 2016-2017 can be found here as a PDF file.

We hope you'll find what you are looking for here and that you will make suggestions to improve the website. We are the "team behind the team," and we look forward to welcoming our old and new members as we cheer for our Scarlet Knights.
