Saturday marked the official end of the 2014 sevens season at the club’s favorite watering hole, O’Brien’s Irish Pub, where 3 of the men’s team’s notable performers were rewarded for their contributions this season.
The 3 special awards handed out were for Most Valuable Player in different categories:
Overall Season MVP – Oliver Marchon
Rookie MVP – Zach Bonte
MVP of the National Championships – Stuart Sharpe
Congratulations to these guys for their outstanding performances.
What made these awards even more special is that the players voted for them, with votes of every rostered player being gathered after each tournament.
I’d also like to take this opportunity to once again thank all our wonderful contributors to the Nationals Fundraising Campaign. All perks associated with your contributions will be shipped shortly.
We are already looking forward to making the 7s program even more successful in 2015.
