Carolinas Names Vegas Select Teams

  • 30 Jan 2019

The Carolinas Geographic Rugby Union (CGRU) is proud to announce the two groups of women who will represent the CGRU at the 2019 Las Vegas Invitational 7s tournament. After a series of three development camps, the managers and coaching staff have come to the final list of Women’s and Collegiate Women’s players that will make the trip to Las Vegas.

“These women worked hard to prepare and prove themselves at tryouts throughout the month of January,” said Women’s Club and Collegiate team manager Amy George.

Both women’s sides are making their second consecutive appearance at the Las Vegas Invitational. The Club Women’s 7s Selects went 3-2 last year and won the Plate in the Women’s Open Division. Both sides aim to build on last year’s experience and continue to represent the Carolinas in fine fashion.
