GRR: West Point Women
This coming weekend, at an event at the Washington Athletic Club in Seattle, West Point tighthead prop Larry Williams will officially be awarded the Rudy Scholz Award as the nation’s top men’s collegiate rugby player.
Kaitlyn Schwarting's leadership and broad range of talents has seen her make it to the list of finalists for the MA Sorensen Award.
She doesn't do it with power but she does do it with strength, throwing herself into the defensive responsibilities of being a center on one of the best teams in the nation, and facing up to some imposing defenses.
The NCAA varsity women's league, NIRA, got their 7s season started at Harvard University Saturday with the Crimson 7s.
Dartmouth held off a West Point 28-18 in a thrilling, action-filled NIRA DI final Saturday night at the US Military Academy.
Paced by a stifling rush defense and two pivotal tries from No. 8 Idia Ihensekhien, the Big Green ran out to an early lead and held on in a back-and-forth match.
The NIRA DI final is Saturday night and features Dartmouth and … Army (?). That’s right, Army.
It’s not that Army wasn’t playing well going into the semifinals, but they had not put themselves in position to be favorites. They finished the regular season 4-2-1, tying Brown (who they beat in OT but the OT didn’t count in NIRA), and losing to Dartmouth and Harvard.
