GRR: NIRA Women
Two games headline the women's slate of college games this weekend.
Harvard gets a stern test and then a week off in the Women’s National Intercollegiate Rugby Association (NIRA) league, and that’s good timing as the Crimson prepares to face Dartmouth October 23.
For the defending NIRA champion Crimson (they won it all in 2019 and there was no NIRA season in 2020), this is exactly what they want as they think about another championship.
Dartmouth and Harvard remain undefeated in NIRA's DI and look to be on a collision course not only for October 23, but for the final on November 20.
Perhaps the biggest game in women's D1 and NIRA college rugby was Thursday night's Life University vs Penn State clash.
Life won 27-19, but that was a pretty good showing from Penn State.
WEST POINT, NY — Army West Point women shut out Quinnipiac 39-0 on Friday night to improve to 1-1-1 in NIRA DI.
Codi Butt had a big night, scoring two tries, three conversions, and a penalty goal for a total of 19 points. Army controlled the game from the outset, and along with Butt, Hope Moseley, Emma Gamboa, Kaitlyn Schwarting, and McKayle O'Boyle all scored tries.
