GRR: Tri-State Conference
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.
The Tri-State men's D2 league has finalized its schedule for the fall of 2021.
The Tri-State men's league will continue to separate D2 and Small College. The D2 league includes six teams that will all play each other once from mid-September to mid-October. The top two teams in the league will get a bye to the semifinals, while the other four will play off for a spot in the semis.
The American College Rugby Association, ACRA, which numbers four women's D2 conferences in the Northeast, has announced that it will not hold a fall 15s championship.
As expected the dominoes are quickly falling in men's college rugby this fall, with conferences that play their 15s season in the fall announcing (or at least making it very clear) that they will not be playing as normal because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
