Letchworth girls made their mark at county and regional level on Sunday.
Five girls from the club took part in an inter-county sevens tournament in Wimbledon.
Letchworth's Naomi Parnell captained the Herts under-17s team, which also included team-mates Rosie Randfield, Chloe Schipani and Nichola Birch, while Jess Robinson turned out for the under-14s.
Parnell's Herts team were triumphant with a strong performance against Surrey and a draw with Bedfordshire which ensured victory on a try count, Randfield scoring a crucial try.
Robinson, who has yet to score for her club, made up for things with half a dozen tries in the under-14 event where Herts finished second to Surrey.
Over 100 miles away, other girls from Letchworth were defending the honour of the East Region at Coalville in Leicestershire.

At under-17 level, Hayley Guilder and Carla Kelly helped the East to a 15-10 victory over Yorkshire before going down to the hosts East Midlands 5-0 in a titanic battle.
But the under-14s took the plaudits with Letchworth's Natalie Threlfall scoring a try in a walloping 49-0 win over East Midlands.
Threlfall and her team-mates have now scored more than 100 unanswered points in two games, a good sign for the regional festival championships at the end of the month.
