2011 CRC Results: Darmouth and Army Women’s Rugby

Courtsey of USA 7s

Dartmouth College put a stranglehold on the USA 7s Collegiate Rugby Championship final and didn’t let go, slicing up an outstanding Army outfit to the tune of 32-10 to win the title Sunday at PPL Park in Chester, Pa.

Dartmouth received the kickoff and were brilliant in their patience. Nick Downer burst through from his own 22 for a half-break that put Big Green on the front foot and they simply worked their way down the field, making small inroads, consolidating on the ruck, and working again.

Reigning DI national champion Army is now the closest thing the country has to a women’s collegiate 7s champion, having put away Penn State 14-5 in the USA Sevens Collegiate Rugby Championship title match.

“It’s pretty amazing,” Army captain Jess Sexauer (seen hoisting the trophy in photo right) said. “Our program is so new that it’s crazy to come so far so soon. We’re graduating 10 seniors this year, so next year will be a change, but this was our year. It was one of our goals from the beginning of the year. We knew both national championships were doable.”   More on their amazing story here.
