Tess Feury picked up rugby when she was four years old after her dad played through college and started a flag rugby team in the local area for Feury and her brothers to learn the sport. A high school varsity soccer player for four years, Feury earned All New Jersey State honors alongside a decorated career as an age-grade rugby player.
Feury was a USA Rugby High School All-American in both 7s and 15s in 2013, 2014 and 2015 and Captained the Team USA Women's Youth Olympic Team in 2014. The athlete was also a USA Under-20 from 2015-16 as well as a Collegiate All-American in both 7s and 15s in 2016 and 2018, respectively. Feury owns a number of accolades in rugby including a 2014 High School Rugby Player of the Year, Big 10 Rugby Freshman of the Year and Collegiate Rugby Championship (CRC) MVP.
In July of 2016, Feury earned her first cap with the U.S. Women's National Team in 15s against England and made her debut with the USA Women's Sevens in 2017 at Claremont Ferrand Sevens. Also in 2017, Feury was selected for the Women's Rugby World Cup and was for the next two consecutive years nominated for the MA Sorenson Award -- one of the most prestigious awards in rugby.
From 2016-18, Feury was named to the USA Rugby Club Sevens National Championship All-Tournament Team.
