GRR: Monarch HS
Palmer HS upended Monarch 22-5 Saturday in Colorado Interscholastic Rugby Association (CIRA) action Saturday, in a result that wasn't necessarily a surprise, but wasn't exactly expected, either.
Monarch was coming off a win over Valor Christian, while Palmer's opener had been canceled, so there wasn't much to go on.
Monarch HS started the Colorado Interscholastic Rugby Association season with a 27-5 victory over debutant program Valor Christian.
On the final weekend of CIRA action in the Girls league, Summit HS won their three-game 7s series with Monarch in dramatic fashion to take the league championship.
Summit was up against Monarch, a team with exactly the same record as Summit going into the weekend.
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.
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.
