Carson Colt Girls Win 3rd SoCal Title In A Row

Carson Girls are formidable.

The Carson Lady Colts made it three Girls Southern California 7s championships in a row last weekend, and that success is a harbinger of how the game is evolving.

This program continues to produce, both as the Carson Lady Colts and also as the South Bay Spartans in high-level sevens tournaments.

In their first-ever season, the Lady Colts went undefeated to win SoCal (this was in 2018). They duplicated that championship last year and then again this year. Siniva Mailo captained that first championship team as a sophomore, and has led the team ever since.

The Lindenwood University commit played all through the backline and was a leader and a playmaker no matter what position she played. 

Ahnea Aupiu, another Lindenwood commit, is captained the team, playing hooker, scrumhalf, and wing. She also played on that original team as a sophomore. The same story is true for Manaia Moala, a powerful 7s prop and sometime halfback who will join Aupiu and Mailo at Lindenwood. 

Center/wing Amaya Moala is a strong finisher and will attend Life University, and so will Mercie Vivao, another multi-skilled 7s prop.

Klarice Sakamoto-Wolfgramm is another strong forward who helps set the platform for the Carson pacemakers. She will be going to Life University. Tayla Hanneman-Puana stands tough as a 7s prop, and she will be fourth Carson Colt playing at Lindenwood.

Breaking the Lindenwood-Life flood is Zonaye Tupuola, who is a forward in 7s. Another member of the original 2018 championship team, Tupuola will attend Central Washington.

This is an indication of how we might see rugby shift in the women’s game, as teams from more urban areas not only find success on the field, but use it to progress to college. Rugby is fun, and gives these girls a chance to play a game as tough (or tougher) than the football their male classmates might play.

And it leads to college opportunities. With the core of this team going to strong rugby colleges, these players, who all have good GPAs and are good students, have used rugby as a springboard for bigger things in life.

Three more Carson Colts seniors will be committing to colleges soon. 

The Colts will suit up for the LA Invitational  this weekend around the LA Sevens.
