Neariah Persinger has earned her way onto another All-Star team and this one has a hard to beat destination. She's off to Barbados for the Rugby Barbados World 7s, the latest edition of longest running club 7s tournament in the Caribbean. Persinger will be playing for a new Elite Select side, Titan 7s. They'll be facing perinneal powers like Atlants, NorthEast Academy, Scion Sirens, etc. This should be a great week of fun in the sun, with plenty of events when the athletes are not training. On the agenda are traditional Christmas carol singing, community service projects, Segway Polo and Segway Racing!
One of the most competitive 7s tournaments of the year, it is a vacation and competitive rugby at the same time, the best of both worlds. Truly a lifetime experience of memories, our goal is to play very competitive rugby and have a ton a fun throughout the week while we are doing it!
-Head Coach Billy Nicholas
