The Dartmouth Rugby Football Club defeated Harvard 51 to 19 to take its ninth consecutive Ivy title. Both teams were unbeaten in their Ivy rugby match-ups heading into the championship match at Dartmouth on Nov. 14.
“We designed our season to hit the ground running once the Ivy Rugby Conference commenced and we continued to work hard each week to build on our individual skills and team processes. The result is our ninth consecutive Ivy Rugby Conference Championship,” says Coach Gavin Hickie.
The players now have a few months to recover over the winter break before returning to Hanover in January to start their preparation for spring competitions such as the Varsity Cup and the CRCs, Hickie says.
