GRR: Women DI Elite
The finalists for the MA Sorensen Award as the top women's college rugby player in the United States have been selected.
A combination of coach/team votes, and fan votes, have whittled the list of nominees down to five finalists. The top fan vote-getter is an automatic finalist, and so is the top team vote-getter (those votes usually logged by coaches or team presidents).
Call it coronavirus, call it Covid-19, call it something else, the virus that's been in the news is having an effect on rugby around the country.
As some major sporting events are being canceled to changed or held without fans, even the relatively small fishbowl of American college rugby is being affected.
Lindenwood University defeated Central Washington 53-29 in a clash between Women's D1 Elite teams, and the victory probably secures Lindenwood as the top seed going into the D1 Elite playoffs.
Lindenwood Head Coach Billy Nicholas continues to adjust his lineup and tinkered with it again this game. All 23 players saw time against the Wildcats.
D1A rugby has announced a partnership with Women's D1 Elite to stage the top Men's and Women's national playoffs and championships together.
