The 2014-2015 D1 Women’s Rugby Club is well underway and we’ve got all the teams and standings for you! Just like last year the league is broken up into eight competitive regions. Overall we are looking at about 20-25 D1 teams in the country, divided into two Leagues.
The Western half of the country is competing in the American Conference and the Eastern half in the National Conference. Within each league there will be four distinct Conferences, with the winners of each Conference advancing to the League Semi Finals, and the two League Champions competing in the National Championship in Spring 2015.
Last year ORSU defeated Chicago NS 48-10 for the D1 Women’s Club Rugby title. ORSU has since re-joined the Women’s Premier League (WPL) and Beantown has dropped down to compete in D1.
The League Semi-Finals and Finals will be played the weekend of May 30-31, 2015. The Eastern League will play in Charlotte, NC while the Western League will be at San Francisco, CA. Seeding:
Eastern League: Midwest Conference v Mid-Atlantic Conference & Southern Conference v Atlantic North Conference
Western League: Pacific North Conference v Red River Conference & Pacific South Conference v Frontier Conference
Detroit vs. Pittsburgh Angels
Beantown vs. Chicago North Shore
Santa Monica vs. HARC
Denver Black Ice vs. Seattle Saracens
USA Rugby National Championship | Women’s Club
From this four-team event, the overall winner advances to a one-game national championship with the overall winner from the same division emerging from the opposite League: American women’s Div I champion v National women’s Div I champion. The USA Rugby Women’s Club Rugby National Championships will be played the weekend of June 13, 2015 @ TBD.
