The Collegiate Rugby Association of America (CRAA) is hosting a second and separate 7s event from the one that occurred at the Houston Sabercats Stadium last weekend. The May 13-14 championship is for CRAA women’s Division I and Division II teams, and will occur at Lake Highlands Park in Dallas, Texas. There are two fields in operation, although it appears there is no CRAA live-stream. Additional information should come from CRAA: https://craa.rugby.
