GRR: Women DI College
The women’s DI college fall championship has been the toughest competition to figure out, but now that it’s set, let’s see what’s occurring this weekend.
Since the creation of the Ivy League conference, it has always been Brown, Dartmouth, Harvard, and Princeton occupying the top tier of the women’s competition. This year, the quartet pursued different post-season paths beyond the conference championship. All but Princeton aligned with the new varsity championship, which contested its quarterfinals last weekend.
A couple of conference championships highlight last weekend's DI action, and their results have unique playoff ramifications:
Eight members of the National Collegiate Women’s Varsity Rugby Association (NCWVRA) will initiate the record books, competing in the first-ever championship quarterfinals taking place this weekend. The higher seed will host the match, and the four victors will advance to the semifinals on Friday, Nov. 20 at Brown University.
