With the CIF Southern Section playoffs about to get underway, Oaks Christian takes its 28-0 record and a new No. 1 state ranking into the opening round. Previous No. 1 Clovis North falls to No. 3. Villa Park also is back up to No. 6, but the strange, sad tale of why previous No. 6 Canyon of Anaheim had its season end needs attention so the situation can be avoided in the future. This week’s only newcomer, meanwhile, is Livermore.
