Mater Dei heads to NHSI tourney in North Carolina with new No. 1 state ranking. St. Francis of Mountain View falls to fifth after hard-to-believe 10-9 loss to Serra of San Mateo. Highest rising newcomers are St. Augustine of San Diego (another CIF state hoops champ) and Agoura of Agoura Hills.
St. Francis of Mountain View wins on Tuesday and moves to No. 1 in place of Cathedral Catholic, which is no longer ranked No. 1 in the CIF San Diego Section. This week’s highest rising newcomer is another San Diego team.
