GRR: Mary Washington
The University of Mary Washington is ready to make the move up to D1A and has confirmed it's schedule.
UMW hosted a 7’s tournament at home today and once again came out on top after five victories over a tough field.
The University of Mary Washington has pulled off two straight tournament victories in the Chesapeake Conference series.
This has been a difficult task to accomplish over the last couple of years, as the Chesapeake has several strong 7s teams, and winning consistently is very difficult.
On a cold, rainy weekend, UMW went 5-0 in this past weekend's tournament.
The University of Mary Washington had to battle for it, but came away with a four-try bonus point and a 22-12 victory over Virginia Tech in the Chesapeake Conference.
it was a muddy affair in Blacksburg, Va,, but it was enough for the Mothers to almost clinch the Chesapeake. UMW just has to garner a single bonus point from its final two league games to secure 1st place.
UMW won the 2018 Cherry Blossom 15s Tournament this past weekend, going 6-0 over two days and scoring 229 points to their opponents' 37.
This historic tournament, in its 52nd year, featured Virginia Tech, SUNY Oswego, RPI, Christendom, Univ of MD, Georgetown, Xavier of Cincinnati, Salisbury, and Towson St among others.
