USA Touch Nationals 2021 was a three day event held in Austin, Texas on October 11-13th. This Nationals was a tremendous cap to the year for the Portland Hunters. We are so fortunate to have a vibrant club that continues to grow each year even through a pandemic. Our growth shows the resilience of our players and their determination to move touch in the US forward. So many people to thank, we'd love to give a shout out to Hunters' Kaitlin, Karen, & Hannah for their crucial planning. Wendy & Sandy, our team moms that were instrumental in our success. The coaching staff: Craig, Nate Dawg, Brendan, & Jesse, the club is so grateful for your leadership. As well as the team managers: Brad & Lizard, your help was essential to the club.
Big love to the referees that traveled and made their own impact on the growth of USA Touch: Mark, Jeff, Alan, & Chris. Congratulations to the Hunters Women's Open side for completing their mission of becoming National Champions once again. Big ups to the Hunters' Mens Open side for completing in 4th place. Not the result we hoped for but we are so proud of all the new players for choosing to be apart of the family and the vets who continue to advance themselves and the club as a whole. We are also proud of the Hunters that have transitioned to bigger roles in the game; much love to Adrian Witte who continues to move the women's game forward as the Director of USA Touch's Women's Program and congratulations on your appointment as referee of the Men's Open Final.
