GRR: Women DII College

11.06.2014 - Jackie Finlan

This weekend marks the opening weekend of the USA Rugby Women’s DII College Fall Championship, hosted by ACRA, and games will be contested in one of four regional brackets. In three of those brackets, a conference championship is serving as a Round of 32 match, meaning the victor moves onto the Round of 16. The Mid-Atlantic region, however, has put a slight spin on the bye procedure.

Colgate and Vermont are poised to meet each other in the first round of the USA Rugby Women DII College Fall Championship, hosted by ACRA. The teams contrast with each other – and that will become apparent on Saturday as they indulge different playing styles – but also share a similar story in terms of the new teams they’ve crafted this fall.

Stonehill and St. Michael’s have been trading blows for the Rugby Northeast title the last few years, but neither has claimed the title with an unblemished record. That changed this fall, and en route to its second league trophy, the Stonehill women broke a number of conference and school records.

You’ve got to hand it to the women’s college sector of the Rocky Mountain conference. The league is challenged at best, with its seven teams hailing from Idaho, Utah, Colorado and Wyoming, and putting some opponents 12-plus hours away from each other.

Bowdoin College just missed out on last year's ACRA women's DII final four, when the team dropped a 10-point game to Kutztown in the quarterfinals. In 2014, the Polar Bears have shown no sign of sulking and outscored opponents 556-5.
