GRR: Tri-State Conference
We have some more conference champions in Men's D2 college rugby.Georgetown
The Georgetown Hoyas not only won the MARC but won it in impressive fashion 65-19 over Villanova. Considering Villanova had only one opponent get closer than 20 points, that's a big score.
Marist defeated the US Merchant Marine Academy to take control in the Tri-State Men's D2 league.
Marist improved to 4-0 in conference play, and wrapped up a regular-season sweep of Kings Point. The two had met before with Marist edging the USMMA 20-17. This time, it was mostly Marist as the Red Foxes pulled away 51-17.
Marist edged US Merchant Marine Academy 20-17 in what seems to be the meeting of the top two teams in the Tri-State.
Marist defeated Hofstra to win the Tri State Conference Men's 7s Championship Sunday, making it a 15s-7s conference double for Marist.
Hofstra made the final with a 31-0 defeat of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in the semifinals, while Marist held off Fairfield 30-19 to make the championship game. The Fairfield team entered into this tournament was their development side.
