GRR: DI Women College
Life University looked dominant Friday and Saturday, winning all three pool games and scoring 107 to the opposition’s five points in the USA Rugby Women’s DI College 7s Championships.
Also going undefeated were Penn State and Lindenwood, but it was Life that seemed to explode onto the pitch at Wakemed Soccer Park in Cary, NC.
Not a lot to report from the Women's DI college 7s nationals on Day One as a relatively small group of teams played just the one round of games.
This is perhaps the most exciting women's DI college 7s field ever, with 11 teams, all of which - yes, every single one - have the ability to win it all.
There is not a single easy game in the tournament, and as such every game will need to be played to the utmost.
May 7 brought us five college championships games in Moraga, Calif, and the final one - one that might have been missed by the elated, the dejected, and the exhausted - turned out to be the most dramatic.
Penn State is not any stranger to the women’s national final The Nittany Lions, in fact, have been in the Big Game 20 times in the last 22 years. That’s right, 20 out of 22. So it’s not really a surprise that Penn State made the final.
And going into the final, they were 10-9 in the final, so you could be forgiven for assuming one outcome or the other.
