On Sunday April 14th the Loyola University Maryland Olympic 7s program took home the cup from the Pittsburgh Rugby Athletic 7s tournament. This annual tournament is hosted by the Pittsburgh Harlequins and is one of eight NSCRO College Rugby Championship Qualifiers.
Humber College, a varsity program from Toronto, proved as strong, fast and organized as predicted winning an extremely well contested final against Bermuda. Bermuda Women gave the Hawks all they could handle scoring first to take a 5-0 lead. Humber played tenacious defense all weekend. Their D proved to be too much for the Longtails of Bermuda. In the end it was Humber 22 Bermuda 5. Humber's Seconds defeated Colgate for third. Humber was impressive all weekend.
The final roster is in! In the biggest year yet, the 2019 Ariel Re Bermuda Intl 7s will host host 20 collegiate men's and women's teams and 6 U10s, U11s, U12s, U13s, U14s, U16s, and U18s teams at the National Sports Centre, Bermuda’s premier sporting event venue.
In a bigger and better event than all previous years, the 2019 Bermuda International 7s welcomes the Chesapeake Collegiate Rugby Conference's Select Side to compete against other high ranking rugby teams across the United States, Canada and Bermuda.
Stony Brook University has officially announced their attendance at the 2019 Bermuda Intl 7s tournament this March.
Jerry Mirro, Stony Brook Head Coach, reported, "We look to bring a strong team to Bermuda each year. The kids enjoy the competition and have a real opportunity to bond with the other teams in the tournament. We’ve made strong, lasting relationships with many of the local Bermudians that we see year to year."
