Moving into 2020, looking back on the triumphs of 2019:
Division Two: 2nd at Regionals on Treasure Island, SF
After an amazing season of development with coaches Evan Hoese and Katie Chou at the helm, the All Blues' winning record gave them at berth at Regionals. There, the All Blues D2 team fell to the Sacramento Amazons, but the Amazons went on to become the Division 2 National Champions, highlighting the high level of competition in the greater bay area.
Summer 7s: 2nd at the National Championship in Kansas City
Going into the summer, 7s coaches Irene Gardner, Lucy Croy, Nathalie Marchino had one vision in mind: winning a National Championship. The All Blues hadn't come close to the podium since they were players on the team themselves in 2013, and the time was ripe to change the narrative. With enough players for two full squads, the coaches developed individual skills through tournament management, which was especially highlighted by a tournament win at Bloodfest in Austin and a definitive 1st place finish at West Coast Regionals. Day 1 of Nationals put the All Blues in a great place to move forward, propelling them into the Championship game on the final day, where they earned a Silver!
Women's Premier League: 6th at the National Championship in Glendale, Colorado
This past season, the All Blues welcomed Joao Moura and Gary Gordon to the WPL coaching staff. Read about the 2019 WPL Coaching staff here! After a series of very close games, the All Blues went into Nationals fighting for a 5th place berth. The All Blues went 1-1 during the weekend, beating Beantown then falling to San Diego in the final match. The team is looking forward to building on this success in the years to come!
