There were no changes in the first eight positions of this week’s CalHiSports.com girls volleyball state rankings, but there may be some next week.
Previous No. 9 Mater Dei of Santa Ana was the highest team to drop after the Monarchs lost in a Trinity League match to Santa Margarita. Since Lutheran of Orange had beaten Santa Margarita earlier in the week, it only made sense to drop the Monarchs behind the Lancers.
No. 1 Torrey Pines of San Diego added two more wins to its resume last week and this weekend will host one of the biggest tournaments in the state – the 2013 ASICS California Challenge.
In addition to the host Falcons, other ranked teams in the field will include No. 6 Valley Christian of San Jose, No. 10 Corona del Mar, No. 12 Mira Costa of Manhattan Beach, No. 15 Mater Dei, No. 17 La Costa Canyon of Carlsbad and No. 20 St. Mary’s of Stockton. Also in the mix will be defending CIF Division I state champion Marymount of Los Angeles.
