The Surfers 7s team brought home the gold to San Diego after a very competitive tournament in Seattle. In pool play, Surfers started with a big win against newcomers Mana Wahine from Hawaii. The second game was not as easy against the Old Blue of New York but Surfers managed to squeak by with a couple of tries. The final pool game Surfers got in the groove against DC Furies with a big victory. Next up in the quarterfinals was Atlanta. The Harlequins had a tough defense, holding the Surfers to just 2 tries, 10-0. Sunday in the semi-finals, Surfers faced the reigning champion Berkeley All-Blues. All-Blues pushed into the try zone at half time to go up 14-12 but in the second half, Surfers scored 3 unanswered tries to put them in the final, where they would again play the Old Blue of New York.
The final was our best match of the tournament both offensively and defensively and Surfers came out with a 47-0 victory to earn the National Champion title. All 12 players had shining moments and scored tries in the tournament. It was a great way to the end the season and an awesome finale for coach Richie Walker, captain Katie Lorenz, and vice captain Liz Strohecker.
