GRR: Tri-State Conference
The Tri-State DII men's collegiate conference got underway this past weekend, with the biggest result likely being Siena edging RPI 16-12 to make a statement as to who will challenge Vassar for the North Division title.
Vassar won also, paced by two tries from center Eli Vargas and 12 points from scrumhalf Gary Garcia, the Brewers defeated SUNY New Paltz 27-14.
This weekend marks the beginning of the Tri-State Conference season and while it’s early days - most of the students have just returned to campus - it’s also a competition that is completely open.
The Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute rugby programs - both men and women - got their season kick-started this week with a special get-to-know-the-game event for incoming freshmen.
The Tri State men’s DII college conference schedule is out, with RPI visiting Siena College in the first match of the year September 5.
