The CIF-SS Preseason rankings are fresh off the press, and the big shocker out here is that Diamond Ranch is No. 1 in the Southeast over Charter Oak. I can’t think of a reasonable explanation why, but it is what it is. Glendora is No. 5 in the Central, Rosemead gets the respect it didn’t get last year with a No. 2 in the Mid-Valley and Bishop Amat is nowhere to be found in the Pac-5.
