The order following Mater Dei, St. John Bosco and De La Salle gets shuffled to account for losses by Narbonne and JSerra and to set up two upcoming showdowns — DLS vs. Folsom next week and Corona Centennial this week. Newcomers coming up into this first part of the State Top 50 include two others playing each other this week — Serra of San Mateo and Menlo-Atherton of Atherton — at Levi’s Stadium.
