Ivy League Kicks Off this Weekend

The Ivy League Rugby Tournament is now a full-fledged league. As a preview of this fall’s inaugural Ivy League Series Championship, e-RugbyNews.com asked each team to preview what we might expect on the field of play, and on campus.

Ivy League Rugby Championship Series 2009

For the first time in the history of Ivy League rugby, all eight ivy teams will compete in an established league. This weekend leads off with 8 games on the card. Four games Saturday; followed by four on Sunday.

When I ran into former Brown captain, Michael Bernstein ’82 at a Red Sox game last summer, we hadn’t seen each other since he had graduated. Mike wanted an update on the team and asked several times what Brown rugby needed.

Michael's request was timely as our Web site had been dormant and ignored for years and we had received some recent alumni criticism for having the worst site in the Ivy League. We can debate whose was the worst, but there is no debating that we needed a new look. Well, no more!

2009 ALL-IVY Selections Announced

The coaches and administrators from the eight Ivy League Schools announce the 2009 Ivy League All-Stars. Congratulations to all participants in the 2009 Ivy League Championships.
