Mater Dei and St. John Bosco already have shown it’s a significant gap to any other teams in the state and remain No. 1 and No. 2. De La Salle also stays at No. 3 after its showing against an opponent that is ranked higher by at least one national group ahead of the Monarchs and Braves. We do have a new No. 4 and No. 5 this week and we have two teams getting major jumps up into the top 25 — La Habra and Torrey Pines.
