The Dartmouth Rugby Football Club ended its 2010-2011 Fall season with a 31-0 trouncing of Harvard of a brisk New Hampshire Saturday afternoon. That win marked the end of regular-season Ivy League play, and the fourth time in as many years Dartmouth has captured the Ivy League title. Said co-captain Tommy Brothers: “Four Ivy League championships in four years is something very, very special, and I think it’s a great testament to the work that we’ve put in and the winning culture we’ve been able to establish since 2007.”
The match was also the end to another undefeated season for the DRFC, and the 11th time the team has taken Ivy gold in the past 14 years. While it will continue participation in Ivy contests next season, Dartmouth will also join the competitive D-1 National Premier League group of rugby-playing colleges and universities. Its first match in that league will be against Delaware on March 5th.
