New England College dominated their regional playoffs in the National Small College Rugby Organization (NSCRO) with a 72-5 defeat of the University of Rochester, and a 38-12 defeat of Eastern Connecticut State.
That put NEC in the national semifinals, joining Central region winners St. John’s. Two more spots remain to be claimed for the April 25-26 finals.
Following the NSCRO Women’s Small College National Championship, both the all-tournament team and Heart-and-Soul awards were presented.
Women’s Collegiate All American coach Martha Daines selected the All-NSCRO Championship XV and presented the 15 players with a trophy and t-shirt provided by World Rugby Shop. Daines chose Roger Williams No. 8 Sadia Crosby as the championship MVP.
The National Small College Rugby Organization (NSCRO) released its women's top 20 ranking for the 2014 fall season.
It took three years, but Roger Williams finally has its trophy. After second- and fourth-place finishes at the previous two championships, the Rhode Island team took home the women’s National Small College Rugby Organization (NSCRO) title after back-to-back victories against UM Moorhead and Sacred Heart.
