GRR: South Carolina
On Saturday, Phoenix Alpharetta played South Greenville in an eagerly anticipated meeting of ranked high school clubs.
It's a busy weekend around the country in Boys HS rugby, as some leagues are getting started, and others heading into playoff-decision time; here's a look:
Wando's place as #1 in South Carolina isn't so much of a surprise to observers, but few would have expected the Mount Pleasant school team to have shut out all four of their league opponents.
In any competition, that takes some doing. Wando Head Coach Tod Shepherd joked that it was luck, but he also knows it's partly by design.
South Greenville sits atop the South Carolina Boys DI HS league after an impressive 36-0 defeat of Greenville HS this past weekend.
Wando, with an 18-0 shutout of the Ravens, keeps pace at 2-0, while Chapin, having lost two very close games, claimed a close win over Aiken.
