CAMBRDIGE, Mass. – The Harvard women's rugby team is set to open action this spring as it hosts the third annual Crimson 7s Tournament at Roberto A. Mignone Field on Saturday, March 25. Eight teams will participate in the tournament, with a total of 20 games played throughout the day. Every match will be broadcast live on the Ivy League Digital Network.
The Crimson opens pool play with matches against American International College, University of New Hampshire and Sacred Heart.
A Season Ago
Harvard had a very successful 7s season a year ago, highlighted by an Ivy 7s Championship with four consecutive wins over Ivy League opponents. The Crimson defeated Yale, Brown and Princeton to reach the title game before taking down Brown again in the championship, 17-5. Harvard also participated in the Varsity 7s National Championships, earning a win in pool play over Dartmouth, 19-0.
The Crimson looks to carry its momentum from the fall 15s campaign as it returns all but one player from the fall roster. Senior Claire Collins and sophomore Caitlin Weigel were named NIRA All-Americans, and will be expected to have a major impact this spring. Freshman Delia Hellander also impressed with eight tries in her rookie season.
