GRR: South Carolina
Here's a look at what happened in the Boys High School rugby scene around the country.
We refer to the team's ranking from last week when appropriate. If we say S14, that means a School team ranked 14 among School teams. A ranking of C19 would be the #19 team in the HS Club rankings.
After 11 months of no rugby or perhaps only modified 7s, rugby union at the high school level is making its return in the Carolinas.
Following host state health rules and relying on private insurance, several teams met up for a big preseason weekend of 15s rugby in Rock Hill, South Carolina over President's Day Weekend.
Wando continued its run of strong results with a 17-5 defeat of South Greenville in South Carolina HS league action.
Against a big, physical South Greenville team that has already beaten Greenville convincingly and also logged wins over Charlotte Catholic, Irmo, and Knoxville, Wando showed off a pretty snappy defensive front.
Wando High School took home two state championships Saturday as their varsity side took the South Carolina DI title, and the 2nd side won the DII final.
