Rutgers after winning the 2014 Metro NY Conference tournament.Metro New York College Conferences took place over the weekend and both divisions crowned a new champion. Rutgers Machine, under the leadership of new head coach Ari Weitzman, brought home their first Conference title since 2006 with an undefeated performance and 15-3 drubbing of Columbia in the final.

Rutgers’ closest game (12-10) came against three-time defending conference champion NYU, who placed third.

We will have more on Rutgers’ rise to the top of the Metro NY Conference and their chances at a deep run at Regionals later this week.

***

On the women’s side of the bracket, Columbia brought home their first Conference title in recent history. Thanks to outstanding play from Emma Kahle (who is getting deserved All-Region praise), Columbia ran away with it, facing only one close contest: a 12-9 win over Yale in the finals. They beat reigning champ NYU easily — 11-3 in pool play and 11-6 in the semifinals.

We will have more on Columbia as they prepare for Regionals, which take place in just over a week from now.

With the decline of RSD, there has been an unfortunate drop in All-Region conversation online. Nobody can see everyone play, but there are many deserving players at less-known schools. We hope these threads can facilitate a conversation about the best players — regardless of hype — in every division of every region. Take it from here. Read more →
