GRR: Ilona Maher
The two-time defending national women's varsity champion Quinnipiac women's rugby team opened its 2017 season with a win, defeating Army 42-22 at home in its first ever game at its new field on Quinnipiac's Mount Carmel campus.
Quinnipiac center Ilona Maher has been named the winner of the 2016-17 MA Sorensen Award as the top women's college rugby player in the country.
It was crossover weekend for the Northeast DI women’s colleges, which produced one thing: big scores. These games do not impact standings, and good thing, because Norwich, Army and American International College outscored their opponents by a combined 348-5.
