GRR: Rugby Idaho
States are starting to crown their high school champions.
It's playoff time in Utah and Tennessee, and more leagues are getting active in girls HS rugby; here's a look at what's been going on around the country.Utah
The Majestics have been playing solid rugby throughout and beat Brighton-Wasatch in the state semifinals on Saturday, while United edged Provo to set up a United-Majestics clash next week.
Mountain View improved to 4-0 in the Idaho Girls 15s league, but it was a hard-won trek to 4-0.
The Meridian, Idaho team seemed to be breezing through the season early on, beating local rivals Meridian HS 62-12 in their opener and handling Eagle 27-17 and Rocky Mountain 29-14. But injuries were piling up.
Rugby Idaho has a full schedule of games kicking off this weekend, with games as early as Thursday.
After a long wait, and basically a year from the last games to now, Rugby Idaho's high school seasons (boys and girls) are back.
Rocky Mountain goes in as one of the favorites in both Boys and Girls D1, but not prohibitively so. The upsets in the playoffs of the girls fall 7s
High School rugby may be returning in the field this spring, at least in some areas.
Of course states are varied in how they have dealt with high school sports, and with some football or soccer seasons being bumped to the spring, other sports, such as rugby, have had to adjust.
