Surfers at Denver 7’s

Surfers take 3rd and 4th in Denver

The Surfers traveled to the Mile-High city on June 20 to compete in the Annual Denver Sevens Tournament. With lots of numbers this year, the Surfers entered two teams into the tournament and faced tough competition against local Colorado clubs, Berkeley, and the Mexico National Team.  Both teams qualified for the semi-finals and instead of facing each other for the 3rdplace title, held an exhibition match against Mexico in the Dick’s Sporting Goods Stadium, with each Surfers team playing one half.  Tries by Mollie Martin and Elizabeth Trujillo went quite enough to edge out Mexico, losing 15 to 10.  Overall 3rd and 4th place finishes in a very competitive tournament.  Both teams will head to Santa Barbara Sevens on July 12th for the second SoCal qualifier tournament for Nationals.
