The Dartmouth RFC gave a strong showing at the CRC this weekend, taking two and drawing one of their three matches in pool play on Saturday to advance to the elimination rounds on Sunday.
If you were wondering who is the best women's team in the Ivies, wonder no more. Brown annihilated all in their path Saturday outscoring their opponents 145-0. They only played three matches!
The Cornell Women, expected to be tough for Brown, were the only team to make a game of it. But the lady bears from Cornell were unable to put points on the board, as the Brown shut them down and out, 15-nil.
In this year's women's competition, Brown is the odds on favorite to repeat last year's victory over Yale and is ranked number four in the country. Cornell, after a disappointing sixth place finish last year is the other nationally ranked team in this year's event.
It has been one year since I have assumed the position of president of CURFC and what a year it has been. Last year’s team, a team full of potential, size, athletic ability, and desire, accomplished many things (including the first Met NY win in over 2 years, a winning regular season record, and two Ivy wins over Cornell) but in the end, failed to reach all of the goals that we had set out for ourselves.
