Boys Soccer Top Ten
1. Mountain View (12-3-5)
Can hang with anyone. No. 1 team in Division V
2. Damien (9-7-2)
After rough December, opened 2-0 in Sierra. That’s huge
3. West Covina (9-4-1)
A huge surprise. Central defender Robert Rodriguez can do it all
4. Wilson (9-3-2)
Beat Bonita 3-1 in overtime. Have to like that Wildcats are 2-0 in Miramonte
5. Rowland (7-4-2)
2-1 win over Nogales proves record is legitimate.
6. El Monte (6-3-4)
Always one of the area’s top ten best. But will they hang with MView in MVL?
7. La Puente (7-2-2)
Off to a great 3-0 start in Montview, and facing Duarte and Azusa this week.
8. Los Altos (6-4-3)
Beat South Hills 3-2 to keep Huskies out of top ten
9. Diamond Ranch (5-1-3)
Not sure if this record is complete, but will be heard of in Miramonte, that’s for sure.
10. Walnut (5-2-1)
Playing well at the moment, already 1-0-1 in San Antonio.

Girls Soccer top ten
1. St. Lucy’s (7-0-4)
Complete team all the way around. Should have beaten Glendora, but settled for 2-2 tie.
2. Glendora (10-3-4)
Defense is solid, just needs more scoring opporunities.
3. Walnut (9-4-1)
South Hills won’t sneak up on them again, Mustangs beat Huskies 3-1 last week.
4. Diamond Ranch (9-5-2)
Predicting they will take the always tough Miramonte
5. South Hills (7-4-2)
Not faring as well against the upper-echelon opponents
6. Bonita (5-4-4)
Striker Deborah Musa is dangerous anytime she touches the ball
7. Charter Oak (8-4-3)
Did anyone see this coming?
8. Los Altos (6-3-2)
I remember when Los Altos ruled this town in girls soccer
9. Bishop Amat (8-4-8)
After great December, Lancers are 0-2 in Del Rey.
10. Arroyo (9-4-1)
Mission Valley not the strongest, but Knights doing their part.
