The team seedings have been set for the Boys High School Rugby National Championships on May 18-20 at the Swope Soccer Village in Kansas City, MO.

Both defending champions in the top tiers -- single-school champs Gonzaga and high school club winners Granite Bay -- have failed to get the No. 1 seed. 

Instead, Jesuit of Sacramento, which has reached the last four finals and seven of the last nine, winning four times, is ranked No. 1 among single schools by FloRugby/GRR and gets the top seed as voted by coaches and other advisors.

Forth Hunt, which is ranked No. 1 by FloRugby.GRR, is also the top-seeded high school club.
