GRR: USA Women 7s
The USA Women are off to a good start in Cary, N.C., opening their NACRA 7s campaign with a 45-0 defeat of Jamaica. The Eagles built a 31-0 halftime lead before emptying their bench and giving everyone a run.
To help the USA Women 7s team prepare for next weekend’s NACRA Olympic qualifier, 12 elite high school players have taken residence at the Olympic Training Center for the week. These young athletes could very well be the next generation of Eagle 7s players, so let’s take a closer at those all-stars in Chula Vista right now:
That team photo behind the “qualified” banner will have to wait, as the USA lost 15-14 to England in the third-place match at the Amsterdam 7s.
