Boys HS Club Rankings Week #13


Boys HS Club Rankings Week #13

Bethesda jumps in at #30. Christopher Martel photo.

It was a pretty brutal weekend for teams ranked between #7 and #20 in the Goff Rugby Report Boys HS Club Rankings.

A number of those teams lost, and some lost to teams they really shouldn't lose to. Spring break, injuries, and exams can hurt any team, but what they also expose is depth issues, and what we're seeing in a number of HS clubs ranked in the middle of the Top 50 is depth issues. They've got 20 or so players, but not the 30-50 or more that strong single-school teams have.

That is, of course, a gross generalization, but it happens a lot.

Big movers include the West Valley Warriors, who beat Genesis in fairly commanding fashion, Okapi, who were overdue and benefited from some losses ahead of them, and Belmont Shore, who won the big game over Back Bay. Harpeth and Beaverton get a bit of a bump after wins over strong opposition. Budd Bay comes in to replace Chuckanut, whom they beat. Siuxland and Bethesda have been dominant in their leagues, and they move in, as does Eagan.

We weren't sure what to do with all of the NorCal DII teams we've been ranking. We're pretty sure they're good, but how good in relation to each other. We have to admit, we're not sure. So ... they're all at #50, and all tied. The playoffs can sort them out.
