For the third time this fall season, the Army Athletic Association has named a member of the women’s rugby team the Athlete of the Week. Zye Crittington joins Nicole Heavirland and Lindsay Clark as award recipients, and put in a noteworthy performance during West Point’s 68-15 victory over Norwich last weekend.
Dartmouth is undefeated in the Ivy League, and although the team hasn’t clinched the top seed to playoffs just yet, the Big Green is looking good for a successful first year as a varsity program.
The East Coast varsity tour is off to a good start, as Central Washington ran up a 66-17 victory over host Norwich (2-4) today. On Sunday, the Wildcats suit up in Hamden, Conn., and will look to keep its four-game winning streak alive against Quinnipiac (5-1).
Two weekends ago, Life (2-1) traveled north for its first two games of the season. After a shutout win against West Chester, the Running Eagles dropped a 14-point game to Quinnipiac. When the team returned to Marietta, Ga., coach Ros Chou tailored training to address some deficiencies discovered while on tour.
More friendlies await for Central Washington, but this weekend is arguably the most exciting for the Wildcats this fall. The Ellensburg team is on the east coast, and will play Norwich and Quinnipiac in an all-varsity double-header.
