Penn State Women’s Rugby Wins Third Straight National Championship

2

While many of us were busy with graduation parties Saturday night, the Penn State women’s rugby team did its thing, notching a national championship in California. The Lions took down Stanford, 38-0, to bring home its third title in a row.

Full disclosure: I’m a little fuzzy on rugby’s rules, so I’ll leave the details of the match to the experts. I do know enough about rugby to tell you Penn State absolutely obliterated its competition throughout the tournament, winning its four matches against East Carolina, Army, West Chester and Stanford by a combined score of 293-15. Apparently, Penn State is the first team in history not to concede a point in the Final Four.

This title caps quite a year for Penn State athletics, which saw women’s volleyball notch its fifth national title in seven years, wrestling bring home its fourth straight, and fencing collect its 13th national crown.

Congratulations, ladies!
