For the fourth consecutive month, a player had a perfect ranking. For Garces, the perfect ranking was his 2nd in 4 months. Uterga and Urriza have dominated the A Group, having the highest rankings in the group each month. Uterga, who had a perfect record in February, continued his great play through the middle of March, by which time he stretched his winning streak to 9 consecutive matches. The streak began January 28, 2017. It was actually a 10 match winning streak, including a victory in the Euskal Jai Berri Festa Gala de Remonte 2017 on March 10. The streak came to an end when Uterga-Endika lost to Ezkurra-Barrenetxea IV 40-38 on March 16. Uterga has since lost 3 more matches to finish 3-4 for the month. Urriza asserted himself with a 5-1 record for the month, as well as a 5 match winning streak. He was a perfect 3-0 in Sagardoaren Txapelketa. In the B group Garces led the way with a 6-0 month. All told, he now has an 8 match winning streak going back to February 23.  As you will see in the table below, the records for the month strongly reflect performance in the ST. 17 players on the Oriameni2010 roster played either as teams in the ST or as substitutes.
