3 Atlantis Sides Make The Podium At Tropical 7s!

Atlantis Rugby is thrilled to see that 3 of the 6 sides we brought to Tropical 7s are coming home with medals! Things started off very well for us on Friday with 4 sides going undefeated and the program earning a 13-5 cumulative record. On Saturday we got off to a great start with all 4 of the undefeated sides winning their opening matches and earning places in their respective semifinals.

Ultimately we ended up with the silver medal in U18 Boys Elite (for the Teal side) to go with bronze medals in U14 Boys and U16 Girls. The U16 Boys Elite earned fourth place to make it 4 sides with top-four finishes overall. We were also very pleased to see that our U18 Boys Elite Black and U18 Girls Elite sides each had a winning record on Saturday to complete a strong finish through to the end!

Here is a team by team breakdown on how each side did in all of their matches this weekend. Rosters for all six sides are at the bottom of this article. We finished the weekend with a record of 24-12.
