It took awhile for Liz Dinkel to figure out what sport she wanted to take part in, but once she did, she became pretty darn good at it.
So much so, Dinkel was recently invited to a prestigious camp.
Dinkel, a Los Alamos resident, took part in the USA Women’s 7s rugby trial session last weekend. Dinkel, a standout rugby player for the Los Alamos Rugby Club for several years, was invited by USA Women’s Eagles head coach Ric Suggitt to take part in the three-day camp held at the University of California-Santa Barbara.
Suggitt’s main goal for the camp was to expand the USA club’s talent base. Dinkel, who has been invited to several top-level rugby competitions during her career, caught Suggitt’s attention.
Dinkel, for her part, jumped at the chance.
“Everybody there works hard at the sport,” said the 20-year-old Dinkel. “They’re really good at what they do. It’s nice to have everybody recognize that.”
Prior to her invitation to the camp, Dinkel had spent plenty of time working with the Eastern Rockies Football Union select-side teams, a regional all-star rugby program. She was also selected in 2009 to the U23 select-side program and was chosen to represent the West Rugby Football Union in an inter-territorial all-star tournament.
