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.
