The recipients of the Surfer’s Scholarship this year are Alana “Banana” Lewis and Kyla “Cubbi” Roth. They both exemplify service to the community through their involvement with the club or the rugby community at large.

Alana has really stepped up her involvement since joining the club in 2011. This past year she has Co-Chaired the Try-On Rugby event at Champagne Classic, has volunteered as the Rookie Coordinator, and is also applying for grants from various foundations on behalf of the SD Surfers club.

Kyla just recently joined our club, but has been involved in SoCal rugby for a number of years. Prior to moving to San Diego, she coached the Scottsdale Wolves U-8 coed touch, U-12 coed touch, and U-14 boys tackle. She is currently looking for a team to coach in San Diego. Congratulations to the scholarship winners, and we look forward to next years applications.

Banana will receive a donation of two team flights and Cubbi will receive one team flight.

Thank you to our Alumni anonymous donor for making these awards possible!

2014 Club 7s National Champions!

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.
