GRR: Women DI Elite
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.
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.
