GRR: Utah Lions
It’s going to be a globetrotting summer for Keagan Barnes as the Utah Lions and Bingham HS.
The scrumhalf/wing/utility back was part of the Lions team that dominated in the United World Games to win Gold in Boys U18 7s. But he’s not done yet, as a trip to Canada and a stint in South Africa are on the horizon.
The Utah Lions Rugby Academy girls team won the Rugby 7s competition at the United World Games in Klagenfurt, Austria last week.
The team, made up of top girls players from the Beehive State, faced opposition from Australia, Hungary, and Germany, including major national academies. The Lions dominated, allowing exactly zero points in the tournament.
On a cold, snowy night in Herriman, the hosts overcame an early deficit to come out with an emphatic win over a talented Lions Academy squad.
The Atlantis U18 boys team won the Serevi RugbyTown 7s U18 bracket in dramatic fashion in Infinity Park Saturday afternoon, with Mike Dabulas scoring the winning try with no time left to defeat a superb Utah Lions team 31-26.
