One of our two newcomers this week, Murrieta Valley of Murrieta, has to go in quite high since the win that put the Nighthawks over the top was against Oaks Christian of Westlake Village (previous No. 28). The other newcomer is unbeaten Pacifica of Oxnard, which has been the buzz of Ventura County. Others getting decent bumps include Clayton Valley of Concord, Lutheran of Orange, Culver City and Carlsbad.
