Women’s rugby club crowned conference champs

In their first full fall season of competition, the Montana State Bobcats Women’s Rugby Club won the Rocky Mountain Conference Tournament. Hosted by Colorado Mesa University, the Bobcats first squared off against Colorado College on Saturday, Oct. 31. Montana State, the number one-seeded program from the western division, dominated Colorado College, winning 81-8 and earning them a chance to face Colorado Mesa for the title. While close for the first half, the Bobcats dispatched Mesa in the second, eventually emerging victorious by a score of 49-12. The championship guarantees the Cats a berth into the Division II National Championships and a home game for the round of 32. The Bobcats will host that game on Nov. 14, time and place to be announced.
