Two Explorers Selected To Atlantis Rugby Sevens Team
Recent graduate, Michael Eife ’13 and current senior, Raekwon Caswell ’14 have been selected to Atlantis Rugby, an elite, invitation-only, rugby sevens team. Many who have received this honor have gone on to play for the US National Eagles Sevens.
Several exclusive tryouts were held all over North America to determine the 12 man team. Congrats to Mike and Raekwon for their selection to the final roster. With Atlantis, Mike and Raekwon will compete against international opponents in the 2014 USA Sevens Rugby Tournament in Las Vegas January 24th-26th.
Additionally, Caswell attended the 2013 New York Sevens Tournament with the RugbyPA East All-Star team. Raekwon tallied 4 tries in 4 games, including a score in the tournament final. The East All-Stars took second place in the tournament and were eventually defeated by Ontario Select in the final match.
