BIARRITZ, France (WAND) -- Boody, Illinois native Lauren Doyle has a new career high point: leading Team USA to the world's most prestigious rugby championship other than the Olympics.
The Meridian High and Eastern Illinois graduate helped the No. 2-seeded Eagles to a 26-10 win over No. 1 seed New Zealand in the HSBC World Rugby Women’s Sevens Series.
By finishing in the top four, Doyle and Co. qualified for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. Winning the title outright was a new high for the program -- Team USA had never finished better than fourth.
