GRR: Queens University of Charlotte
Queen's University Charlotte men's team pushed West Point in an early-season non-conference game.
Yes West Point won, but the score, 48-28, and the fact that it was 26-21 50 minutes in, is encouraging for Queen's.
The Queens University of Charlotte men's rugby team earned its first win of the season, defeating Iowa Central Community College 21-15.
The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry, wrote the poet Robert Burns, and it's very true this rugby season as college team upon college team has put games on its schedule only to have to cancel them because one team isn't ready, or the other team has a problematic COVID test.
In Queens University’s run to a national DII title in the fall of 2019, the Royals lost only once—they get to face that team again now that they return to the field on Saturday.
Note: A positive COVID test on one of the teams has canceled this game.
This latest list of college commits has a large number from Queens University Charlotte, as both the men's team, and especially the women's team, have announced impressive (in talent and size) recruiting classes.
Harvard's women's program is also listed, and several of what is likely to be a longer list from West Point men is also there (see image).
