Rude rugby awakening for Wolverines
By: Cecil Conley, Sports Editor
Rugby fans weathered rain and wind last Saturday to watch Sierra College play Cal in Rocklin. Fortunately, the Bears left their juniors and seniors in Berkeley. The Wolverines were no match for Cal's freshmen and sophomores, allowing 28 points in the first half on their way to a 35-7 loss. Coach Michael Taylor's Sierra team will now prepare for the Division II playoffs, which begin April 2. The Wolverines were ranked 14th in the last Division II poll by rugbymag.com.
