The first four teams from last week remain in place, but there are plenty of changes after that with Rocklin moving into the top five, Mater Dei Catholic of Chula Vista moving into the top 10 plus Huntington Beach, Pacifica of Garden Grove and South (Torrance) moving into the top 20. Newcomers this week are Livermore, Otay Ranch of Chula Vista, Mater Dei of Santa Ana and Lincoln of Stockton. The other big news in NorCal is Foothill of Pleasanton getting its win streak snapped at 34 games.
NOTE: Scheduling all of these state rankings in five sports is quite difficult. There will be no new softball rankings next week, but on Monday April 19 both the baseball and softball rankings will be released and will continue to be done on that day for the rest of the season.
