Fallbrook defeated View Park to win the Southern California Girls 7s championships this past weekend.
The Varsity Red competition in Southern California is for teams that have 100% of their roster from a single school, and it’s a competition that has been growing.
Six teams in the San Diego Division have been joined by seven teams in the Los Angeles Division, and this weekend begins a torrid run to the playoffs in late February.
Perhaps the most notable aspect of last month’s View Park Prep win over Wilson HS was that, while View Park had not been working much on defense, they managed to shut out Wilson 20-0 anyway.

Fallbrook Girls HS team got past one of their more difficult opponents in Southern California this past weekend, defeating ICEF 51-19.

Southern California named its two representatives to the Women’s Club 7s National Championship, and two very different sides are heading to Iowa. Defending champion San Diego Surfers will be looking for its third title and boasts a nice mix of hometown talent with players currently training at the Chula Vista OTC.
The idea that coaches and sports help young people out of difficult circumstances is a strong one, a good and demonstrably true adage, but that doesn’t mean the journey upward is easy.
