GRR: USA Women 7s
Maybe not so much a rookie, Ariana Ramsey is still listed as uncapped for the USA Women’s 7s team; uncapped, but an Olympian.
Ramsey hasn’t played in the Sevens World Series yet, but did enough to garner a place on the Eagles squad for Tokyo. She says it’s because she knew where she was deficient, and fixed it.
Like the USA men’s 7s team, the USA women had a long travel from Chula Vista, Calif. to Mimasaka, Japan, lasting about a day and a half, but the goal at the end of all that makes handling it easier.
A primed and confident USA women's team swept through the competition at the Quest for Gold to take the cup.
The Eagles beat Great Britain three times and Jamaica once (they ended up not playing Mexico), and then finished off with a 12-12 tie with Great Britain in the final.
The Quest for Gold 7s is set to kick off Friday at Dignity Health Sports Park.
CHULA VISTA, CA—USA Rugby has announced its full 15-player women’s roster for the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, pending approval from the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee.
Led by Head Coach Chris Brown, the roster features 12 starters, one alternate and two traveling reserves.
