GRR: Southern California
After a long preseason period, Southern California sees high school rugby return.
Several very highly-regarded clubs are in action this weekend after several weeks of preseason clashes. Perhaps a little hard-done-by not to get an invitation to the Boys HS Rugby National Championships, Thunder Rugby has something to prove.
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.
Girls HS rugby around the USA is in a deep state of flux as COVID and competitive changes have had their effect.
The Woodlands cruised through much of a very active weekend, but ran into a bit of a brick wall on Sunday.
Southern California's Boys HS Clubs got back into preseason action this past weekend, with the South OC Raptors and Thunder Rugby coming out victories, albeit in two very different ways.
It was a runaway for Thunder against La Jolla, with Thunder winning 84-13.
