CRC Qualifier Day One Recap (Updated)

Photo: Connie Hatfield

Eight teams have moved on to the Cup quarterfinals in the CRC qualifier division after day one. As expected the top teams advanced but there were also a few surprises. In the end Lindenwood and Central Washington enter as the top two seeds with New England College and Clemson right behind them. Rounding out the quarterfinals include surprise Dixie State, Notre Dame College, Lindenwood-Belleville, and Santa Clara.

Central Washington only gave up five points while scoring more than 100 as they topped Pool A. Notre Dame College took the top spot in Pool B with wins over Harvard and Colgate. Millersville was a no-show at the tournament and all their results were replaced with 14-0 losses. Lindenwood coasted through Pool C and Clemson did the same in Pool E.

Take the jump to read more.

There were a couple of pools that offered up some surprises. Utah sides Utah Valley and Dixie State offered up opening round wins in Pool D over Wheeling Jesuit and Northeastern respectively. When they went head to head Dixie State prevailed 17-14. Dixie State would go on to lose their pool finale to Wheeling Jesuit 26-19. However, it didn't matter in the end as the Trailblazers claimed the top spot.

In Pool F, Santa Clara beat Lindenwood-Belleville 19-17 in their opening round match. That would prove critical as Santa Clara went on to win the pool in narrow fashion. Still, Lindenwood-Belleville survived to take the lone second-place spot available. They just edged out Grand Canyon.
