Women's Rugby Captures Brown 7s Tournament Title
The Army West Point Women's Rugby Team went 4-0 Saturday on its way to winning the Brown 7s Tournament in the Black Knights second event of the spring season.
"The Army women worked very hard throughout the day to improve their quality of play," said Assistant Coach, Lara Vivolo. "As coaches, we feel they accomplished this by lowering the number of errors. It was great to see them clicking as a squad." Army scored wins over Norwich, West Chester, and Brown, before taking down Quinnipiac 24-5 to finish the day.
