The women's rugby team - who proved their strength last month by lifting a car - won the Metropolitan New York Rugby Union Division II Championship yesterday by beating SUNY New Paltz 29-12. Despite the cold temperatures, the crowd was energetic and some spectators even came in Halloween costumes. The team now advances to the quarter finals of the Northeast Rugby Union Division II Championship. The top two teams of the NRU Championships will go to the National Championships in the spring.
The team's next home game will be against Boston University at the Vassar Farm this Saturday (November 6th), at 1pm.
