    Not that at 6 feet, 11 inches, he needs to stand out more than he usually does, but Alex Kirk has been trying to keep as a high a profile as possible this summer.

    The sun slowly bobbed below the emerald-green rolling hills of Gorey, Ireland, as the Los Alamos Girls Rugby team battled to a 7-5 victory over Gorey High School June 19.

    Despite fighting jetlag, Los Alamos rallied from behind late in the match in the unforgettable victory.

    “The first couple of minutes everybody was kind of discombobulated and all over the place but then we just worked together and it was a good game,” fly-half Liz Dinkel said. “Everyone pulled their weight.”
