GRR: Tri-State Conference
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.
The Tri-State Rugby Conference has announced that it will not have a rugby competition this fall.
Several universities in the conference have suspended inter-collegiate competition and many club sports have followed suit.
So the Tri-State Conference, men and women, will not support a competition and announced that all games are suspended. Teams will also not be charged dues.
The American Collegiate Rugby Association has officially relaunched, operating collegiate rugby for four women's D2 conferences in the Northeast.
