For the third time this fall season, the Army Athletic Association has named a member of the women’s rugby team the Athlete of the Week. Zye Crittington joins Nicole Heavirland and Lindsay Clark as award recipients, and put in a noteworthy performance during West Point’s 68-15 victory over Norwich last weekend.
Despite the score, a very good game occurred between Central Washington and BYU on Saturday. The pair are inarguably the two best DI teams that are competing in-season in the West right now, and the friendly offered insight into their progress as they build toward the DI Elite championship in the spring.
South Florida and Florida International had it tough last year. The pair were the only competitive DII teams in the state, and even though a healthy rivalry formed between the two, the rest of the season was filled with forfeit wins. Salvation came when Florida decided to form an independent DI separate from the South Independent conference.
Earlier than expected, the Mid-Atlantic (MARC) final four has been confirmed. Kutztown will play East Stroudsburg, and Bloomsburg will play Delaware in the semifinals. MARC will receive three representatives at the national fall Round of 32 (Nov. 14-15).
