The club or multi-school rankings comprise high school teams whose players are athletically eligible for more than one high school and whose high school does not have a sponsored rugby program. In those rankings, Utah's United Rugby Club is third, the Orem Rugby Club is 10th and the West Valley Warriors Rugby Club is 23rd.
"This is very exciting to have six nationally ranked teams in the Utah Youth Rugby High School Spring Season this year, " said Utah Youth Rugby President Owen Power.
Power said that this is an Olympic year with the sport returning to the Games for the first time since 1924, when the USA beat France to claim gold.
"These nationally ranked high school players are part of the next
generation that very well could help the USA claim another Olympic Gold Medal in Rugby, " said Power.
The Utah Youth Rugby High School Spring Season kicks off in March. For more details on youth rugby in Utah go to
