The new-look USA Club 7s Championships is set for August with some significant changes afoot.
The Iowa Central rugby program has added a new assistant coach, bringing in Joe Lippert to the staff.
Lippert replaces Jake Mizel, who was hired as the new head coach at Arkansas State earlier this year.
Yes, yes Lindenwood won the men's CRC 24-14 over Life, but that wasn't all.
The tournament itself happened, with 28 men's teams and 14 women's teams and alumni/select 10s teams as well. We got to play, said so many players and coaches.
Lindenwood defeated Life 24-14 in the final of the Men’s CRC Monday afternoon, surprising many who expected Life’s high octane attack to get the better of the Lions.
But unleashing a physical, aggressive defensive strategy, Lindenwood took away Life’s ability to exploit space and got in the faces of the Running Eagles.
We’re in to the quarterfinals for the Men’s bracket at the CRC.
Lindenwood will play Western Michigan, Army will play Air Force, Lindenwood will play Notre Dame College, and Davenport will play James Madison.
Several of these teams encountered some stiff competition in getting to this point, and some responded well while others responded … adequately.
