The Indiana University Women surprised teams and won this fall’s Midwest D-1 title.
Via the Midwest RFU site, IU beat Purdue 22-5 while Northern Iowa defeated defending D-II champs Iowa State 24-20. IU beat Norther Iowa 15-12 for the championship.
I had a chance to meet some of the IU players and their coach at the recent U-19 camp we held here in Madison. And I’ve got to say, those IU players stood out impressively from the crowd. Plus they had the best t-shirts – “We put the Laughter in Manslaughter.”
