North American HS 7s
The 2020 Tropical 7s event, slated for Orlando, Fla. April 10-11, has been canceled.
Following on with other cancelations throughout the country due to the COVID19 outbreak, this very large tournament needed teams to be notified, and it took some extra time to communicate with the 100s of teams involved.
Eagle Impact Rugby Academy won the LA Invitational Boys Elite 7s, and also took home the Boys U16 title in competition at the LA Sevens weekend.
EIRA ran out two squads for the Boys Elite, a Red team and a Navy team. However, late injuries took a toll on the roster, and Head Coach Salty Thompson took 20 players to the tournament. More on that in a moment.
