If you’ve been following Queen’s Rugby at all, you know that both the men’s and women’s team have been dominating on the field, a trend that continued this past weekend.
Both of the Rugby teams, along with the Queen’s Football team and the Queen’s Women’s Soccer team brought home wins over the weekend from Friday, Sept. 20 to Sunday, Sept. 22, 2019. And although the Cross Country teams and the Men’s Soccer team didn’t take any top places this past weekend, they’ve all delivered outstanding performances, so keep an eye on those teams, too!
