GRR: Women's DII College
Following the 50th Anniversary of the signing of Title IX, it seems appropriate to look at where we are in women’s collegiate rugby in the context of that landmark legislation.
It has been a rocky journey getting this far for some teams in the Collegiate Women's DII Round of 16, but after this weekend, four teams will be one step closer to facing Davenport in the May 7th DII National Championship.
The SIRC's seeding for the DII's Round of 16 will be determined by this weekend's set of playoff games between Georgia, Tennessee-Chattanooga, Tulane, and Kennesaw State.
Saturday, UGA has a scheduled bout with UTC while Tulane faces off against Kennesaw State. The winners will play Sunday for the conference championship.
Mary Washington took a 50-42 win, and maybe a playoff spot, from American University last Saturday thanks, in part, to the traffic.
Both teams scored the same amount of tries, forcing each kicker to determine the outcome of the game. Luckily for Mary Washington and unluckiny for America, traffic delayed some key AU starters and they missed the first half.
Regardless of the outcome of tomorrow's game, Eckerd clinched the DII Florida conference last week with a 57-5 win against FAU and will move on to the DII playoffs.
But, they will still be tested once more by FGCU before they can claim an undefeated conference season.
