Northeast Academy Wins Barbados 7s

The Northeast Academy have repeated as the Barbados 7s champions (the tournament was previously held in Tobago) after yet another dominating display. In eight total matches the team gave up only 63 points while scoring 233. Eagle Nate Augspurger led the team on the way to being named tournament MVP while Jared Collinson was the tournament's top scorer. In pool play the team ran over the Defence Force, Warriors, Rogues, and Reivers. On day two the team was regrouped into a championship bracket. There they beat Xhosa, Reivers, and most importantly Esher. That put them into the championships match against Xhosa who they beat for a third time.

Other American teams in the men's bracket included Atlantis and the Panthers. Atlantis had a mixed record beating Barbados and the Panthers while losing to Esher and a narrow two point loss to Xhosa. The Panthers didn't have has much success. They were blanked by Esher, Atlantis, and Xhosa while also losing to Barbados. Atlantis went on to beat the Rogues for the Plate.

On the women's side of things American sides didn't have as much success as the men. The Sirens were the best American side beating the Northeast Academy in the 3rd/4th match. Atlantis went home with the Plate. Canadian side the Dog River Howlers were one of the better women's teams along with eventual champion Scottish side Ecosse.

“Barbados is a terrific venue and to take 1st and 4th was another good haul for the Northeast Academy program”, said Coach Steve Lewis in a press release, “and a fitting way to send off Director Sean Horan on his final trip before emigrating in January”. The Northeast Wolves will next see action at the Rainforest 7’s in Costa Rica in February 2017 followed by the Las Vegas Invitational in March.
