Mater Dei ventures to Marymount and takes its fifth loss, which then created the difficulty of either leaving the Monarchs at No. 1 because they still have a head-to-head win over previous No. 2 Archbishop Mitty or moving up Mitty regardless. This week’s rankings also had to account for Lakewood beating Long Beach Poly and […]
NEW Girls VB State Top 20
We’ve already got some major shakeups but Mater Dei stays at No. 1 due to win on Tuesday by league rival Santa Margarita over a Marymount of Los Angeles squad that probably would have been a new No. 1 had it won. One of the Eagles’ early losses was to the Monarchs at a tournament […]
