Finishing the Season Strong

The Bad News ‘Hoos are finishing up the season soon. We beat everyone at the Mardi Gras tournament to take the win! We had a successful VWIT (thanks to the VWIT Chairs!), losing to Navy 22-17 in the semis. Indiana won VWIT and were a tough and physical team. We lost 29-20 to JMU in Mason-Dixon quarters, which knocked us out of National contention for the first time in 15 years. We bounced back nicely by beating U Pitt 56-7 in our consolation match. This weekend we take on U Maryland at 11 on Saturday at the Engineering Fields, College Park (you can Google map that). After that we play under the lights in Richmond versus the James River Women on Friday April 18th. Dorey Park. mardi_gras
