2015 Surfside Sevens and American High School Rugby Championship

Saturday, August 29, 2015 - 10:00am

The Elite City Sevens Series sponsored by USA Rugby comes to the Greater Chester Valley Sports Association (GCVSA) Soccer Fields in Malvern, Aug. 29-30.

Two legendary Philadelphia-area rugby clubs have announced a merger. Second City Troop RFC, a D4 club founded in 1986, will join forces with the Schuylkill River Exiles RFC, a D1 club founded in 1995 that has seen much recent success including four MAC rugby sevens titles. 

Fluent is a New York-based advertising technology company that has been a sponsor of Surfside Sevens for several years. Tim Antoian is a member of the Philadelphia Whitemarsh Rugby Football Club (president as of 2015) and long-time player for the Shockers, a group of mostly Penn State alum who have seen glory on the pitch in Stone Harbor. 

West Chester prevailed over Conestoga 24-14 in the high school boys Cup game at the 2015 American High School Sevens Championships (AHS7s) in Stone Harbor, NJ.

Doylestown pulled out a big win over Media Blue in the Grade School (U13) Boys Cup final at the American High School Sevens Championships. 

The High School Freshman (U15) finals at the American High School Sevens Championships (AHS7s) was something of a family affair. After shaking off all comers in a strong bracket, two teams from the Maryland Exiles Rugby Club went head to head for the championship.
