Home & Away Wk 7 : MIT vs Dartmouth ; MIT vs Rutgers ! Priyank Kumar (MIT) 99 !

RUMIT37Memorial Day Weekend saw what might be the final American College Cricket Home & Away matches before the Summer Break. The season will continue in late August when colleges resume for the Fall Semester.

In about 1 month available before Finals Exams, many clubs tried to fit in Home & Away matches but it would have been great to see more. 2013 Home & Away Champion Harvard got off to a great start, but it was new club MIT led by Koustuban Ravi that determinedly strove for the lead, and at break they were well ahead of # 2 Boston University.
