Five Exiles Chosen to Represent Atlantis at Rugby Barbados World 7s
In a tournament featuring teams from Scotland, USA, Trinidad, St. Lucia, Guadeloupe, and Barbados the elite Atlantis 7s program has chosen five Schuylkill River Exiles to compete at Rugby Barbados World 7s this weekend. As usual, the Schuylkill guys are homegrown Philadelphia rugby players competing at a high level and you can find former U-23 Academy players in their ranks as well as guys who have represented our Club at Nationals on the premier stage. We are proud to see these guys take the next step in their development as players and participate in big events like this.
The aforementioned players are:
Dan “Chino” Deal – St. Joe’s University
Paul Diorio – West Chester University
Cody Bukowski – Drexel University
Brian Keown – St. Joe’s Prep
Mitch Vannoy – University of Delaware
Mitch also gets some extra credit because in addition to playing for Atlantis he’ll be on the coaching staff for the Titans who are competing in the women’s bracket. Great stuff Mitch!
In pool play they’ll be competing against the Xhosa Hurricanes (Trinidad and Tobago), Warriors (Barbados) and Trinidad and Tobago Defense Force.
We wish all of you the best of luck this weekend!
