NIRA Kicks Off With Big Scores

Harvard opened up the National Intercollegiate Rugby Association (NIRA) season with a very convincing 57-10 defeat of Quinnipiac Saturday.

The Crimson was led by Sofie Fella, and Arianna Romero, who both scored two tries, while Cassidy Bargell, Delia Hellander, Robyn Beeseleading, Brogan Mior, and Sabrina Kim also touched down.

Mior added six conversions for a personal total of 17 points. 

With the other NIRA game between Notre Dame College and Dartmouth being called off, this was the only contest in the opening weekend of the all-varsity DI women's college league.
