Sports editor Zach Waltz previewed the upcoming women’s rugby game against University of New England.
The game, held in New Hampshire, serves as a regional playoff game. If the team claims victorious Saturday, they’ll move on to the Northeast Regional Finals against either Sacred Heart University or Franklin Pierce College. The winner of that game will move onto the Division III National Championship.
The team won the New York State Championship for Division III last week with a 45-5 thumping of the University of Rochester.
