2013 TOP 10 ONTARIO HIGH SCHOOL RANKINGS
Every spring, panels of high school coaches from across Ontario submit their personal best teams selections from which consensus Weekly Top 10 Rankings are developed.
These are the final rankings for the 2013 high school season. Thank you to the coaches who submitted their personal rankings every week. We hope everyone found the rankings interesting and informative, and that they successfully promoted high school rugby.
