GRR: University of Washington
The idea that college rugby conferences should follow college sports conferences in other sports isn't new, nor should it be followed universally, but it does have merit in specific areas.
It was a somewhat quiet weekend in DIAA, but these players made some noise.Maaveave Petaia, University of Washington
Former center and now flanker Petaia scored two tries in a huge win over Oregon State.
Well this past weekend churned up the NCRC, even as the playoff berths were clinched.
Western Washington went into the weekend at 4-1 and in position to clinch 1st in the NCRC North, but instead lost to Oregon 18-12.
That was on the heels of a strangely close 17-15 loss to the University of Washington.
The University of Washington Huskies will be playing an independent schedule for the coming 2017-18 season.
Director of Rugby Mike Alfstad said the decision has been under consideration for some years now, and it wasn't to do with dissatisfaction with the NCRC conference.
