Eastern Club 7s Qualifiers Recap

It's time to check with 7s qualifiers in the East. As things stand just the Midwest has to dole out their spots.


The South had their championship over the weekend in Atlanta. Optimus, Legion, Charlotte, and Miami had good starts with wins in the first round.  However, after two rounds only Charlotte, Legion, and Miami stayed unbeaten. Charlotte's win was especially tough coming up with a 12-5 over Optimus.  As things progressed Charlotte was able to continue to win while Optimus made up for the loss by advancing to the final along with Charlotte. That meant that both teams qualified for Minneapolis. In the final Charlotte won 26-5.


Schuylkill River and the Beltway Elite were the best teams throughout the Mid-Atlantic season and the continued for the most part over the weekend. Schuylkill River kept up their strong play in pool play while the Beltway Elite, who had a short squad, went 2-1. That meant that the two top teams would meant in the semi-finals. Either way, both had already done enough to claim a Club 7s Nationals spot. Schuylkill River would beat the Beltway Elite in the semi-finals and then the Norfolk Blues in the final.
