21. (19) Clayton Valley (Concord) 9-2
With all of the NorCal teams losing in CIF state finals held at Sac State, the Ugly Eagles also have to drop a couple of spots in the final rankings. They still have to be in front of CIF NCS D1 champion Monte Vista because nothing changed in the factors that led to them being chosen for the NCS Open Division anyway. They lost in that Open Division 28-0 to De La Salle, but their only other loss was to No. 11 Helix of La Mesa. Clayton Valley also beat eventual CIF D4-AA state champ Campolindo of Moraga 50-15 in its final regular season contest.
