The first season of CIRA Girls Rugby season enters a crucial weekend as the top two teams in the competition will meet for a series of three 7s games.
Along with Rugby NY, several other high school rugby competitions are gearing up this weekend.
After a bit of a soft launch, Minnesota sees four games scheduled for Friday (although one game appears to be a forfeit). Albert Lea, Becker, and Eagan have all started well in an eight-team league, although Southside is probably going to struggle to field a full side.
The Colorado Interscholastic Rugby Association's first season has produced few surprises, at least at the top.
Summit HS, which entered the season favored in the Girls 7s league that kicked off this month, has indeed made it to the top. Perhaps the most interesting thing is that Monarch HS is right there with them.
Girls HS rugby around the USA is in a deep state of flux as COVID and competitive changes have had their effect.
The Colorado Interscholastic Rugby Association will kick off its inaugural season with a Girls 7s league beginning on April 1.
The league will consist of six teams: Regis, Monarch, East HS, Palmer, and two teams from Summit. Teams will meet for individual games rather than a tournament, but some of the fixtures will also have JV games.
