GRR: Rhode Island
The University of Rhode Islands defeated Providence College this past weekend to regain the Rhody Cup.
A new three-division conference is being formed for the 2017-18 DIA college season, with an eye toward localizing certain competitions and keeping teams that want to play only in the fall together.
We know almost all of the teams that will play in the Men's National DII College quarterfinals, after results this weekend; here's the rundown:
The Norwich University men's rugby team remained undefeated (7-0) with a convincing 39-12 victory over NECRC rival University of Vermont.
The Cadets' victory clinched the NECRC 2016 Conference Championship and gives them an automatic bid to the USA Division II Collegiate Rugby National round of 16.
The Norwich University men's rugby team is now 2-0 in the New England CRC after beating Middlebury in 30-14 on Saturday.
The Cadets opened the game with 30 straight points and held on as Middlebury scored two tries in the final eight minutes. Norwich got two early tries from scrumhalf Tom St. Pierre, and flyhalf Keegan Frisk converted one try and added a penalty for a 15-0 lead.
