DI Women Stanford-bound

Four DI Women's team have earned a spot in the Emirates Airline USA Rugby 2011 Division I Women's College Semifinals in Stanford, Calif. on May 13.  Cougar Women's Rugby, Virginia, Army, and reigning champs Penn State will convene at Steuber Rugby Stadium on Stanford University's campus to determine which two teams will advance to the National Championship game on May 14. 


Cougar Women's Rugby took out Navy in a remarkably tough match with only seven points in it.  Navy failed to get on the scoreboard and the Cougar Women only managed a converted try.  The Cougar Women will have another service academy standing in their way to the championship game in Army.  The women of Army shut out University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill 51-0 in the Round of 8.


Virginia upset Brown in the Round of 8, but they have a firm test in the semifnals as they face perennial DI Women's powerhouse, Penn State, in the semis.
