Even though the U.S. women’s Eagles 7s rugby team has already qualified for the Rio Olympics this summer, the official roster hasn’t been announced yet.

But things are looking pretty good for Alev Kelter of Eagle River.

The 25-year-old Alaskan led the team in scoring at this weekend’s tournament in Atlanta, Gerogia, and was the only American named to the all-tournament team.

The U.S. team won five of six games, its second strong showing on the heels of a good showing in Brazil.

Kelter, of Chugiak High fame, scored 27 points and ranks sixth in the world with 56 points this season.
