Like it’s DII counterpart, there wasn’t any movement in this week’s DI College Spring Ranking – but not because there weren’t any games. They just evolved according to predictions.
Central Florida sent 11 different players into South Florida’s try zone during a 89-0 win. No. 8 Madi Woodson accounted four of those scores, while prop Lil’China La’Teal Davis dotted down two. Maddie Potter and Jamie Spataro took turns off the tee. Florida State is also 4-0 in Florida and plays 3-1 Eckerd this weekend – a game we’re watching.
In the Mason-Dixon, Virginia wrapped up its undefeated matrix season in the north, putting 60 points between it and Pittsburgh. Meanwhile, the make-up game between UVA and James Madison was halted at 55 minutes with UVA ahead 48-5. The game of interest occurred in the southern pool, as Queens University of Charlotte just held off North Carolina 20-14. Read the Royals’ report. More rain and cold.
UC Davis had its double-header last weekend and went 2-0. The Aggies banked another single-digit decision against Stanford, 24-17, and then beat Cal by 40 points Sunday. Senior backs captain Prai Harris continues to lead the squad and reiterated her status as the team’s best finisher last weekend. Chico State was idle
In the Pacific Mountain North, Washington State rostered 17 for its fourth league game against Western Washington, but that’s all the Wildcats needed for a 78-15 win. Flyhalf Erica Chandler remained influential, while lock Emily Fallin, flanker Brooke Jackson, No. 8 Danielle Anderson, centers Jadyn Campbell and Clarice Chartier, and fullback Alexie Smith also scored. Scrumhalf Victoria Scalfaro handled the extras. In other conference news, Oregon State banked a 93-5 win over Boise State, while Oregon eked out a 38-34 win over Washington.
