Boys HS Nationals Teams Selected

null

The teams for the Boys HS Rugby National Championships have been selected.

After a long application process that produced the most competitive field ever for this tournament, 24 teams have been selected.

Later this season, these teams will be seeded, with the top eight single-school teams being put into the Single-School bracket. The top eight club teams will, likewise, be put into the HS Club bracket.

The remaining teams will compete for what is a hugely competitive Tier II bracket.

“This was the largest number of applicants for this event yet," said Bart Bottorff, part of the selection committee. "Frankly, many teams that were put on the waiting list would have been selected in the past. We are thrilled with the high level of interest, growth, and quality that the National Championship continues to bring.”

The Boys HS National Championships will be held at the Regional Athletic Complex in Salt Lake City, UT May 16, 17, and 18. All of the games will be LIVE on FloRugby.

Here are the teams:

HS Clubs
Aspetuck Valley (CT)
Back Bay (CA)
Charlotte Tigers (NC)
Danville Oaks (CA)
Eastside Lions (WA)
Granite Bay (CA)
Kansas City Junior Blues (MO)
Lamorinda (CA)
Raleigh Redhawks (NC)
Royal Irish (IN)
San Diego Mustangs (CA)
United (UT)

Single-School Teams
East HS (UT)
Gonzaga College HS (DC)
Greenwich HS (CT)
Herriman HS (UT)
Jesuit HS (CA)
Kahuku HS (HI)
Penn HS (IN)
Snow Canyon HS (UT)
Rocky Mt. HS (ID)
St. Thomas Aquinas HS (KS)
Wando HS (SC)
Xavier HS (NY)


The teams all have to apply, producing evidence of their long-term competitiveness, and proven ability to fulfill playing and financial obligations.

Those that have already started their seasons have a bit of an advantage in that they can prove on the field how strong they are. 

This was especially helpful for the Raleigh Redhawks and Lamorinda, who have started well.
