Leading the NAHS 7s series, the Atlantis boys are in prime position to take it all in Salt Lake City.
Head coach Greg Schor Haskin also has made a key change this year; he's bringing just one team to the Elite bracket.

Remember last year? Remember how the senior Atlantis team ended up losing to the younger group in the quarterfinals? The older Atlantis squad was one of the favorites, but sometimes those closest to you know best what your faults are.
The loss was tough to take. See what they were expecting to accomplish after we talked to them after Day One.
So, yeah, losing in the quarters wasn't easy to take.
But now? Now Atlantis comes with a strong team that includes some U16 players who have moved up. Schor Haskin has found some more in their selection camps, and he says this group is very unified.
"I think this year we've re-focused," he said. "We have one team in the Elite Bracket and that's the right move. We have one U18 team, and then we have U16s and U14s."
That's right, instead of widening the reach at the U18 level, Atlantis is fielding a U14 team. That's one to watch for sure.
