Open division teams Mater Dei, Carondelet, Bishop O’Dowd and Windward grab No. 1 honors. Sierra Canyon does same in Division V. Check here as well for top teams to watch for next season in each division.
It’s a tough call for Division III, but St. John Bosco has one win that can’t be overlooked. The only CIF state champion ending No. 1 in its division (due to Open Division teams being higher) is Horizon in D5. We have top teams to watch for next year in this post as well.
There are two new No. 1 teams this week with Mater Dei of Santa Ana taking over in Division I and St. Augustine of San Diego in Division III. The highest rising newcomer is College Park of Pleasant Hill in D2.
In the next to last polls of the season, there are few changes, except in Division I where Berkeley bounds up to No. 8 and Hanford gets a nod as a newcomer at No. 15. Lynwood is a new No. 2 in Division II while Sierra Canyon is a new No. 1 in Division V.
Despite last-second loss, St. John Bosco goes back to No. 1 in Division III. Others getting significant bumps include Mission Hills of San Marcos, J.W. North of Riverside, Modesto Christian and Capital Christian of Sacramento.
Major movers led by Vista Murrieta in Division I after its big win over Long Beach Millikan. There’s also a new No. 1 in Division V with Horizon of San Diego replacing Brookside Christian.
State-ranked Monarch girls lose at Carondelet while the boys win at home against Newark Memorial. Natalie Romeo hits for career-high in points to lead Carondelet. Plus: Etiwanda girls eliminated in D1 South.
With the CIF moving up Brookside Christian’s girls to the open division, there’s a chance that all five final No. 1 ranked teams according to divisions won’t be CIF state champions. We also choose best team in each division that is done for the season.
We are leaving the open division teams in their original state divisions. This is the way it was done in football, but that only effected Division I and two teams. This will involve four of the five CIF divisions.
This is what we think will happen during Sunday’s selection meetings and what we hope will happen. Go inside as well to check out which teams look solid to be top seeds in each “regular” division.
