FALLBROOK – Fallbrook Girls Rugby Club returned from the Las Vegas Invitational victorious after four games.
The tournament was held at Heritage Park over the weekend of Jan. 23-25. The Fallbrook under 18 team (U18) won games against Snow Canyon (Utah), Bishop O Dowd (NorCal), and Lashburn Lucky (Saskatchewan, Canada) twice. Playing 15-a-side rugby, Fallbrook ended the weekend with a 266-5 points difference.
The tournament allowed Fallbrook to begin its season by successfully introducing the new, younger players into the U18 division with the experience of the returning players. A rewarding weekend was had by all.
The Durbin sisters, Johni and Lilly, had a fruitful weekend scoring 11 tries each. The new leadership team, led by Captain Taylor Duncan, created a positive and unifying environment in which all players were able to feel comfortable and thrive.
Fallbrook players Rachel Bell, Kayla Canett, and Michel Navarro played in the sevens division for an elite team, the Serevi select side, made up of players from across the country.
Fallbrook Girls Rugby Club appreciated all its supporters who traveled to Las Vegas and coordinated behind the scenes events to ensure their success.
