So there have been a few growing pains in these HS rankings, as evidenced by the fact that two teams drop out entirely because they are (just imagine our surprise) Single-School teams!

We figure, given that all the teams in boys rugby now use high-schoolers exclusively, we might end up merging these rankings at the end of the season, and going forward.

These teams play each other all the time anyway.

Once again, if you think we messed up, let us know at scores@rugbymag.com.

Note that some teams just starting their seasons have not been ranked, yet. They will be.

The big changes come at the top. TRYBE beat United 36-19, and move up as a result. Colorado Springs did what we expected, and essentially negated their early loss to Cherry Creak (when they were minus some players) with an excellent result over a very good East HS team. And Cathedral beat previous #5 Westerville 29-0.

Cathedral jumps up to #1, Springs to #2. #1 Lamorinda is a fine side, and had a productive trip to Argentina (two close losses), and shouldn't take the drop to #3 too hard.

Some big games this weekend: TRYBE v. Snow Canyon, Red Mountain v. Tempe, Trojans v. Alpharetta.

Still a lot of rugby to be played.
