GRR: Women DI Elite
The eight teams slated for this weekend's two-game Women's DI Elite College playoffs are now seven.
Indiana University has pulled out saying they are hurting for numbers. Head Coach Vaughn Mitchell has notified Penn State that IU is forfeiting and won't be at State College this weekend for the quarterfinals and semifinals.
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.
