Quinnipiac Women’s Rugby Caps off Special Season with National Championship Win.
Rhino Rugby is the proud Kit Provider for Univ. of Quinnipiac’s Women’s Varsity Rugby team who won the NIRA Women’s National Championship this past weekend at West Point’s Anderson Rugby Complex crowning them first back-to-back champions ever.
After an unbelievable season of knocking off college powerhouse teams Penn State and Army in the regular season, the Quinnipiac Women found themselves back in the National Title game looking to make history as the first back-to-back Women’s National Champions. The defending champs had never beaten rival Central Washington and even lost to them in the 2016 regular season 12-19 in Washington, which made this Championship match up even more interesting.
After a back and forth first half, the two teams found themselves tied up 17-17 going into the break. Determined to make history, the Quinnipiac Women pulled away in the second half with a flurry of tries posting a final score of 46-24. Rhino Rugby wants to Congratulate Quinnipiac on a historic season and National Championship Victory!
