GRR: James Madison
And we're down to four teams in NCR's D1AA championship after this weekend's quarterfinals.
In most cases the higher-seeded or higher-ranked team won, but not always.
Don’t look now but James Madison is making a move.
After a series of years where JMU was not getting the results they are used to, the Dukes are now 3-0 and right in the thick of it with 4-0-1 St. Joseph’s and 3-0 Rowan.
Even as college rugby conferences are shifting their associations, teams within those conferences are also moving around.
And one major issue is now rearing its head—varsity status.
Navy won three games this weekend, beating Iona, James Madison, and James Madison's 2nds in a pretty successful weekend for the Midshipment.
University of South Carolina won the opening Chesapeake Conference 7s tournament of the season, beating James Madison 14-7 in the final.
Played in snowy conditions at Towson University, the tournament included six teams from the Chesapeake and several others from outside the conference (including USC).
