The ship remains fairly steady in this week's men's rankings. Beltway launched itself back into the rankings after a last-second defeat of Schuylkill River in Richmond. Beltway was previously dropped after a poor showing at the Eastern Open, but moves back into the rankings after regaining the driver's seat for the Mid-Atlantic's berth in New York City.
Elsewhere, the Westside Ronins stumbled at the Can-Am 7s in Bellingham and will need to have a better showing in Oregon at the Roy Lucas 7s this weekend. Their struggle indicates that newly-formed Boise is better than everyone thinks, or the Ronins' run at the Western Open wasn't as impressive as previously thought. Westside's struggle, combined with NYAC's runner-up finish at the Showdown at the Shore, bumps several West Coast teams downward.
