The TOLA series capped off it’s finals at the Shreveport-Horseshoe TOLA 7s Aug. 8-9, 2009. Host club Shreveport won in overtime against a well-coached Little Rock Club. National women 7s coached, Julie McCoy had her boys playing great rugby but Hal Struckman and his Shreveport gang stood tall at the end and came away with the victory.
Greg Varnell was in the middle with Wendy Young and Rich Prim assisting on the touch. Mr. Varnell did an excellent job. We had a good crew of match officials during the weekend; from the very new to the very, very old. Match officials included Chris Kelly, Traci Schmidtke, Wendy Young, Greg Varnell, Rich Prim and visiting referee from the deep south, Chris Piscotta.
Congrats to a strong referee crew and kudos to a great job the Shreveport team provided as host on this very hot Aug. day.
