The NCAA varsity women's league, NIRA, got their 7s season started at Harvard University Saturday with the Crimson 7s.
The NIRA playoffs are upon us, with Finals Weekend at West Point set for November 20-21.
Here’s how it’s all looking:
Harvard clinched 2nd in the National Intercollegiate Rugby Association league with a strong defensive performance and a 21-7 victory over West Point Saturday.
In what is almost certainly a playoff preview, Harvard and Army clash at the Anderson Rugby Complex in West Point in NIRA action this weekend.
This is the final league game for both teams, and a chance to set the tone for what promises to be a hugely competitive playoff for the women's NCAA varsity DI competition.
It was a runaway and then it wasn’t, but Dartmouth held off Harvard 45-31 in the clash of two undefeated NIRA teams, setting up a potentially thrillling clash in the final in a few weeks’ time.
