NEW Softball State Top 20

We didn’t think there would be much movement in this week’s rankings, but then a funny thing happened to Mater Dei of Santa Ana heading into its showdown on Friday in the Trinity League with No. 2 Orange Lutheran. The Monarchs lost. They were No. 8 and had to give up some spots after that...
