GRR: Utah Lions
The Utah Lions U16 team took 3rd at the Paris World Games in June.
The Lions ended pool play 3-1 with defeats over local team CD41 (21-5), AAS Sarcelles (57-0), and Sri Lanka (51-0), while losing 29-0 to French Academy Paris SUD.
The Utah Rugby Academy has named its Boys team for the HS Elite 7s bracket at the Las Vegas Invitational.
This group includes five returning from last year's team, along with four players who moved up from last year's development team. This is the core of the Academy program that will compete for the NAHS 7s title at the NAI 7s in Salt Lake City in August.
The Utah Lions Rugby Academy has been hard at work preparing for what is expected to be an incredibly tough set of elite divisions for the u18 boys and girls.
The North American HS 7s will be launched this season as a series of top-flight high-school-level 7s tournaments for elite touring teams.
The Utah Lions Girls team has been enjoying a pretty good summer, what with winning the United World Games in Austria, and then finishing second to a national-level Canadian team in the Victoria International 7s.
Next up? The North American Invitational 7s July 29-30 at the Salt Lake Regional Athletic Complex in Utah. This is the team’s home tournament, essentially.
