Final Four Set in Collegiate Rugby Championship

After a great weekend of rugby the collegiate rugby field has been trimmed down to four teams in each division.

Plenty of favorites in the field, but also a few surprises.

 The biggest surprise of the weekend may have come in Men’s Division II as the University of Massachusetts-Amherst came into the tournament as Northeast #3 and heavy underdogs. In the Round of 16 they knocked of Midwest #1 Wisconsin-Whitewater and then trumped that with a win over Southern Cal #1 Arizona State to advance to the Final 4.

  • Men’s Division I: BYU, Army, Arkansas State, and Cal
  • Women’s Division I: Penn State, Army, Brown, Stanford
  • Men’s Division II: Claremont, Miami (OH), Temple, U of Mass – Amherst
  • Women’s Division II: Temple, UC-Santa Cruz, Washington St., Norwich

The Men’s & Women’s Collegiate DI & DII Championship takes place April 30th – May 1st at Steuber Rugby Stadium on the campus of Stanford University.

    I’m excited to see the collegiate championship at Stanford, as I’ve been keeping up with these rugby games for a while. Some teams surely got surprisingly strong.
