Dartmouth found the shutout it was looking for this weekend, blanking a physical Columbia side in the second match of the inaugural Ivy League season. Sophomores Will Lehmann and Paul Jarvis put in four tries a piece to help the Big Green to an 80‐0 win over the hosting Lions.
It was back and forth with Brown and Columbia at Columbia's Home Stadium Picth @ Baker's Field on the university campus. Week 1 of the Ivy League Rugby Championship Series 2009 was underway with a hard-fought battle of Ivy Leaguers.

“It is great the Ivy League has come together,” remarked Cornell Head Coach Tonee LaBar. “When I look back to the history of rugby, I think of the Ivy League… some old school, down‐and‐dirty knuckleheads pounding on each other.
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!Posted: 06/06/2009
