GRR: Tri-State Conference
The Tri-State Conference Women's competition is headed for its quarterfinals this weekend after the final day of regular-season play.
North #1 is, not surprisingly, Vassar, with Fairfield securing #2 with a 24-22 defeat of RPI on Sunday.
Marist traveled down to Kings Point, NY to play Merchant Marine Academy to decide Tri State regular season champions.
This has been a stop-start season in the Tri State but both Marist and Kings Point have managed to get through it ready to play. Both defeated RPI in tight games and really that's what set up this encounter. Officially both teams were unbeaten going into the match.
Vassar women have moved to 3-0 after a well-taken 39-14 win over Fairfield University.
Vivika Sheppard scored two tries for the Brewers with Emily Howell, Lauren Showalter, Sophia Tang, Louise Ambler, and Maeve Smith all getting a try each.
US Merchant Marina Academy moved to 2-0 in the Tri-State Conference with a 19-8 defeat of RPI Sunday.
Marist pulled off a very big Tri-State Conference win early in the season, beating RPI 25-12.
RPI came into the season with a big roster and some experience, and certainly plenty of potential. Marist also has bolstered its numbers and looked fairly polished on the day.
