Mitty goes back in front of Marin Catholic at No. 3 while the highest riser is Valley Christian from No. 10 to No. 8. Almost all of this week’s playoff games will be section semifinals.
Los Gatos and Freedom hammer their way into the top list by posting impressive wins. The toughest decision, meanwhile, was how far to drop Mitty.
Branson moves up to third in the region and No. 1 in the NCS. The Bulls also seem like overwhelming favorites to win fifth straight CIF Division V state title, which would be a record.
The NCS seedings are out and the answer is no, we don’t change rankings to match seedings because in those cases the differences will be settled on the field anyway. Teams on the rise this week include San Ramon Valley, Campolindo, Casa Grande and Miramonte.
Mitty moves up to No. 2 but still has to play Serra and Bellarmine in the WCAL. Analy is the week’s lone newcomer.
Valley Christian bumps off the Bells and gets jumped up to No. 10 in this week’s rankings. Milpitas, Wilcox also move higher.
Mitty gets the fourth spot this week just in front of Marin Catholic. Newcomers, meanwhile, are Miramonte and Sacred Heart Prep.
Clayton Valley joins the top 10 as No. 1 D2 North bowl game ranking also gains strength. San Ramon Valley also gets a bump while this week’s newcomers are Wilcox and Northgate.
San Mateo Serra moves up to No. 2 while Deer Valley jumps to No. 11. Congrats to newcomers Milpitas and Montgomery of Santa Rosa.
Torrey Pines and Mitty stay in the top two slots, but there’s a lot of shuffling afterward. Menlo School of Atherton, meanwhile, gets in as this week’s only newcomer.
