GRR HS Club Rankings Week 8

Woodlands vs Aspetuck from last spring. They played again this week. Griff Hastings photo.

Much movement this week.

Woodlands takes over the #1 spot after two nice wins on tour. Belmont Shore hasn't really done anything wrong, but we haven't seen them play much so that means they drift down a little. Ranked teams are kind of like sharks—they have to keep swimming to stop themselves from sinking.

Granite Bay has been putting in the results and they could have been #1 this time around. Yes they beat Gonzaga, but there was an open subs wrinkle to that game and so that stops us just short. Danville, which tied Granite Bay earlier, stays close. 

Pendleton is also recording good results and their win over 901 was a head-turner. They leap into the Top 10. Tempe drops a big after a loss to Regis Jesuit and split short games with Neuqua. But really they aren't that far away from the higher spots. It's just that other teams won games or had competitive losses to highly-ranked teams.

Finally, AYR ... War Eagle and Inman Park play under those names in Georgia, but really they operate as one club. So we're ranking them as one club. Much, much more to come from Washington, Oregon, Utah, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin in the coming weeks.

Don't forget that the GRR Rankings are brought to you by Next Phase Rugby, the app you can download at and start your college search.
