Comments: After several comments from a few readers, I’ve decided it would be best to base the rankings through Monday’s matches, and will will continue that through the rest of the season…The extra day to determine the top 10 had no bearing on who’s No. 1, however. Bonita showed it deserved to be King for the week after knocking off previous No. 1 Los Altos in four games…It was a tough week for the Conquerors, who drop to No. 3 after following up the loss to the Bearcats with a five-game setback to South Hills, whiich appears to have solved its consistency problems…Props go to Covina, which is slowing moving up the latter following last week’s upset of Valle Vista frontrunner San Dimas…The Saints recovered nicely with a victory over Ganesha in a battle for first place Monday, sweeping the Giants in three…St. Lucy’s, which lost its coach a few weeks ago, is also making a second-half push and has now won four consecutive matches going into today’s first-place battle with Sierra leader Ayala. The Regents’ streak inlcudes a five-game win over rival Glendora, which rallied from two games down to force a fifth game before losing.
Quote of the week: “It’s interesting how the mental toughness was there (in game four), but not in the fifth game. If you can figure that out, let me know.” – Glendora coach Jen Barbone after the Tartans lost in five games to St. Lucy’s.
