I was rather surprised to find very little mentioning that the National All-Star Championships for Senior and U-23 Women are this weekend in Minnesota.

Good thing we already knew about it, huh?

Via USA Rugby, a release on the U-19 Women’s National Team playing in the U-23 NASCs this weekend …

USA Women’s National Under-19 Team Announced for the USA Rugby Women’s Under-23 All-Star Championships

BOULDER, Colo. — The USA Under-19 Women’s National Team announced the squad for the Women’s Under-23 National All-Star Championships to be held in Blaine, Minn., June 15 – 17. The USA U-19 squad is currently ranked No. 6 and will compete against opponents in the tournaments B pool.

The team consists of eleven capped players and nine players new to the squad. The coaching staff had originally selected a squad of 22, but late withdrawals have left the squad a little depleted.

“We lost Meagan Buford and Justine Harris this week and obviously we will miss the experience that these two capped players would have provided,” said Head Coach Bryn Chivers. “While the squad is small in numbers, it is big on talent and five of the “rookies” were in the original selections for the tour of England and Wales.”

Laura Parker (Kansas City, Mo.) will again take on the role of Team Captain with Lisa Henneman (Kent, Wash.) assuming Field Captain responsibilities. After three years with the U-19 WNT this event will be the last for Laura Parker as a player, but she will remain in Blaine with the WNT Staff and assist in the running of the U-19 Flight Camp to be held June 17- 21.

“Laura has been wonderful as Captain for the last two years and by having her join the staff for this event we have the opportunity to provide the younger players attending with a great role model,” Chivers added.

The U-19 squad is as follows: Kyle Armstrong (Summit County, Colo.), StaceyBridges (Texas A&M), Hanna Gregor (Portland, Maine), Alex Hartley (Brown), Alicia Hartley (Brown), Lisa Henneman (Kent, Wash.), Brittany Houston (Vernon, Wis.), Kerrie Hughes (North Bay, Md.), Katie Johnson (Hopkins, Minn.), Audrey Jones (West Linn, Ore.), Adetayo Mafe (Michigan State), Kati McCormick (UW Milwaukee), Laura Parker (KC Jazz), Caretta Reese (St. Bonaventure), Maggie Reidy (Divine Savior, Wis.), Rachel Sachs (Syracuse), Seymira Salami (State College, Pa.), Megan Thompson (Western Washington), Catie Turnerdrown (Riverton, Utah), Jennifer Turnerdrown (Riverton, Utah).

There are still a few open spots for the U19 Flight Camp, which is open to female players born on or after January 1, 1988, regardless of experience level. A brochure and registration can be found at

I’ll post scores as I find them.
