UNC Charlotte Takes Southern Conference 7s Title

This past weekend the top eight teams from the 2018 SRC 7s Series met in Charlotte North Carolina to compete for the Conference Championships and the right to represent the SRC at the 2018 USA Collegiate 7’s National Championships.

 

With some very physical pool play matches (UNCC 14 vs. Citadel 5) and heart stopping knockout round performances (Furman 21 vs. Citadel 19), the overall level of play from all eight teams at the tournament was outstanding.

 

But at the end of the day it was the hosts and defending SRC 7s Champions that stole the show. The UNCC '49ers capped off their perfect season (20-0 including the Conference Finals) by capturing their second consecutive SRC 7’s title.
