BC High School Updates: Scores from Stadium Series and AAAA/AAA Rankings



Round 1 of the Stadium Series completed this weekend and subsequently the first rankings are out. The AA rankings are supposed to come out later this week.

St. George's following their defeat of Shawnigan Lake have secured the #1 ranking in AAAA. Oak Bay, last year's AAAA winner lost to Carson Graham so drop to #4 in the early season rankings with Shawnigan #2 and Carson Graham #3. Earl Marriott, ranked #5, the other Premier League team had a bye in the top league and played a match vs AAA school West Vancouver which they won comfortably 45-10. We'll have to wait until Friday April 12th to see how Earl Marriott stacks up against other Premier teams when they take on #3 Carson Graham. Last year the 5th place team in AAAA dropped down to the AAA level for the Provincials, leaving the top 4 to compete at the AAAA Provincial tournament.

In AAA South Delta come into the season ranked #1. They defeated Kelowna 17-7 in the Stadium Series, Kelowna are ranked #4. Another Fraser Valley school Robert Bateman are ranked #2 and they had a close victory over #3 ranked Claremont. Claremont is the only Island AAA team ranked in the top 9, Fraser Valley have four schools in the Top 9, Lower Mainland have three and Okanagan have one.

Although the AA rankings aren't out yet, expect SMUS and Rockridge to be highly placed, they traditionally perform well at the Provincials in AA and they both handily won their matches last week.
