We are happy to report that the interest in High School rugby sevens in Milwaukee is higher than normal this year and brackets are filling up faster than normal this year.
Typically, most schools wait for their Spring season to end before registering for the Lakefront 7s. And in past years, the girls High School rugby sevens bracket has been in question until the last few days of the event.
This year however, the High School Boys bracket is nearly 50% full (7/12 spots remaining). Interestingly, two international sides are registered: Consett RFC from the UK and the Mystical Canucks, a joint team consisting of players from Mystic River in Boston and Rugby Québec in Canada.
And the 2017 Champions — Eagan Rugby (Eagan, MN, USA) — are back to defend their title.
The High School Girls bracket already has two teams registered with 6/8 spots remaining. Iowa’s all-star team the Hawkettes are registered along with first-time participants the Harriers from Hamilton High School in Sussex, WI.
