GRR: USA Rugby South
The USA South Panthers tryout scheduled for this weekend and outlined here - South Panthers Look to Vegas - has been canceled due to the high probability of thunderstorms.
The USA Rugby South Panthers select side program is holding an open tryout for the teams set to play in the Las Vegas Invitational in March.
This will be for the Boys HS Elite and Girls HS Elite 7s brackets at the LVI, and will serve as the opening round in the North American HS 7s elite-level series.
The USA Rugby South age-grade select side programs continue to prepare for the Barbados 7s; NAHS 7s, and the International RAN U19 fifteens, with the Atlanta Camp this Saturday, Nov. 19.
The camps will be held at 10200 Wooten Rd in Roswell, Ga. The Tiger Rugby Academy will assist.
The USA Rugby South U19 Panthers program has announced tryouts for 7s and 15s events in 2017.
The 7s program will compete in the North American HS 7s (NASH 7s) events in Las Vegas (the LVI) and the NAI 7s in Salt Lake City later in the summer. More tournaments will be added later.
The USA Rugby South’s victory at the Rugby Americas North U19 Championship was certainly in doubt going into the final, but the players had faith.
One of those players knew exactly what had gone wrong in the second pool-play game against Trinidad & Tobago - a game the South won by one point - and was confident the Panthers could rebound.
