D1A Rugby: Final 2014-15 Canterbury D1A Top 20

BOULDER, Colo. – Saint Mary’s has reclaimed the No. 1 ranking in the Canterbury Top 20 to close the season after its 30-24 victory over Life in the D1A National Championship.

The Running Eagles, who took over the No. 1 spot in Canterbury’s rankings from the Gaels in March, fall to No. 2. As the two teams did a season ago, Saint Mary’s and Life never relinquished the top two spots for the entirety of the 2014-15 season.

The rest of the rankings saw zero movement following the completion of the D1A Playoffs. Other than the Gaels’ six-point triumph of the Running Eagles in Atlanta, no lower-ranked teams were able to knock off their higher-ranked opponents in the three Playoff rounds leading up the Final.
