Joining the seven-win club and currently tied with the Griffins for second is the surprise of the season, Columbus.
After ending the 2015 campaign with a 5-9 record, Columbus has improved dramatically to 7-3. The Ohio club led the conference for a good part of the fall with big wins over Metropolis, Kansas City, the Lions, and splitting its games against the Griffins.
This season’s success has been years in the making for Columbus as hard work and determination has shown through this year. The infectious prosperity of Columbus’s 7s program, 1823, has bled through to 15s this season.
“We made huge strides from last year,” said Philip Payne, head coach at Columbus. “We are certainly proud of that. We see talent across all of the teams, and the majority of them are very well coached. I am proud of the rugby product we put on the field each week.”
With five weeks left in the spring, the Midwest is up for grabs. Each club from top to bottom is capable of emerging as the victor in any contest. Bonus points will be paramount in each match as the conference champion will be determined in May.”
