A Stars Player Round-Up

Several of our Stars have been in action over the past few weeks (so much so this blog has been difficult to keep up with):

-Rookies Tatum Walker and Michelle Montague competed with the Beavers 7s side at the festival tournament alongside Amsterdam 7s. Our friendly rivals Tribe 7s from Australia also competed and took the title.

-Vets Liz Entwhistle (Fort Miami) and Rebecca Trapp (Pittsburgh) were in Pittsburgh for the USA Rugby Club Championships where pool players Kyle Granby (NYAC) and Marcus Satavu (New Haven) also hit the pitch. Rebecca's Pittsburgh Angels team won the East to advance to the USA Rugby D2 Championship game in Madison, WI.

-Rookies Nana Fa'avesi, Sana Fa'Avesi and Siu Green won the USA Rugby West Championship with their Sacramento Amazons team. We may be picking up Mariella Hey for the squad too!

-Rebecca's Pittsburgh team prevailed in Madison to repeat as D2 Women's Club Champions in what was the closest and best game of the day!

-Stampede 7s Rookie Kayla Rudman and Vegas Vet Carly MacKinnon attended the Women's Collegiate All American West Camp in Colorado.

-Vegas Vets Christina Swift and Kim Semiglia are participating in the Women's Collegiate All American East camp this weekend in at James Madison University in Virginia. Rookie Lara Gartner is there as well as injured pool player ChiChi Chukweke.

-Rookie Ty Elkins is competing this weekend for the Ohio All Star Team at the Elite City 7s Competition in Houston. Earlier this spring he traveled to play 7s in Norway and was named tournament MVP. Additionally this spring he has been competing in 15s for the South All Stars in the NACRA Championships where they look to repeat as title winners.

-Rookies Josie Ziluca and Kaelene Lundstrom and pool player Jessica Turner toured Spain with Atlantis 7s over the last week of May.

- We added 5 Canadian collegiate players from University of Victoria and University of Alberta to our roster for Stampede 7s!

- Kyle Granby also took part in the first Super 7s test on US soil. The New York Rhinos squad lost to the Ontario Blues  79-43 in this four quarter, 48 minute long 7s match that allows rolling subs and a 16-man roster.
