Summer 7’s Updates:
Jacksonville 7’s traveled to West Palm Beach to compete in Surfin’ 7’s, and despite a tough schedule and elite competition, Jax was still able to finish strong and come home with some hardware, defeating Naples for the Bowl 34-12. “We had a really tough draw from the start, facing three of the top squads in Florida, but were really able to come together as a team throughout the day and ended up stringing together a few strong performances right up until the end” says Jax 7’s captain Sean “Tennessee” Balaban. “We knew coming into this season we would have a formidable team with the influx of new athletes and strong veterans the club has had, and it’s nice to see what we’re working on in practice is translating to results on the field. Our goal is to be an elite-level 7’s team in Florida, and this was a big step for us.” Jacksonville’s next tournament will be Beerfoot 7’s in Naples July 26th. Practice and conditioning is held every Tuesday and Thursday at 6:30 at Baymeadows 9A Park. Come get a run in and get your fitness up!
