Penn State Women’s Rugby Wins Third Straight National Championship
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.
