College 7s took the attention of many during May, with the continued shifts and changes in schedules meaning that while a group of college teams were in the last throes of the 15s playoffs, most were thinking about 7s glory.
The ongoing story of the year in Men’s college rugby was obvious to me before I had my conversation with Wayne Milner, but that conversation certainly confirmed it.
Milner is the senior VP at the Washington Athletic Club in Seattle, and we met last fall to initiate talks that led to the formation of the Rudy Scholz and MA Sorensen awards.
Here's the latest from three championship finals in women's college rugby Saturday.

The finalists for the first annual MA Sorensen Award - co-sponsored by the Washington Athletic Club and Goff Rugby Report, and sanction by USA Rugby - have been selected.
USA Rugby has announced the dates and matchups for the inaugural Women's Division I College Elite playoffs.
The eight teams will be split into two pools of four, with the highest-seeded team in each pool hosting the first and second round matchups.
Despite the score, a very good game occurred between Central Washington and BYU on Saturday. The pair are inarguably the two best DI teams that are competing in-season in the West right now, and the friendly offered insight into their progress as they build toward the DI Elite championship in the spring.
Reigning DI champion Penn State capped its Big Ten regular season with a 60-12 win over Indiana on Sunday, and takes the top seed into the conference championship on Nov. 7-8. The victory came a day after the team’s 29-14 win over the Pittsburgh Angels, the former DII club champion and a DI semifinalist last spring.
