Tribune Girls Soccer Rankings
1. Bishop Amat (13-3-4) — The Lancers are at a disadvantage heading to the playoffs because their league is weak compared to the Sierra and others in their playoff division. But the Lancers Lancers have experienced playoff players and are the defending champions, so they won’t lack confidence against anyone when the postseason arrives.
2. Claremont (17-1-3) — Good week for the Wolfpack, who move into a tie for first with St. Lucy’s after the Regents’ loss to Chino Hills.
3. St. Lucy’s (13-5) — The Sierra is too good for anyone to go undefeated. Case in point was Chino Hill’s 2-1 win over the Regents. There are five teams that have a shot at the league title. And that’s not an exaggeration.
4. Chino Hills (13-2-4) — You can never rest in the Sierra. After beating St. Lucy’s they lose to South Hills. The Huskies have a great overall record, but if the playoffs started today, they would be out.
5. San Dimas (14-2-2) — At least Wilson gave the Saints a game before losing 2-0. The Saints are too good for the VVL and have outscored their opponents on the season, 58-13.
6. Diamond Bar (11-3-4) — Still in control of Hacienda after a 1-1 tie with Bonita. Anyone following the Brahmas saw this coming. They were young and talented last year, and are finally putting it together.
7. South Hills (7-2-7) — The bottom line is the Huskies only have two losses in 16 games and scored twice against Chino Hills, something they desperately needed for their offensive confidence. Big picture is clear, whenever you defend as well as the Huskies do, you always have a chance.
8. Sierra Vista (11-2-2) — Are the Dons one of the top ten best teams in the area? They can’t prove it beating up on the weak Montview, but given their recent history, they deserve to be here.
9. Bonita (8-7-2) — Forget the overall record, they’re getting it done in a league with a lot of parity, and its 1-1 tie with with Diamond Bar was the only blemish on the Brahmas’ league record.
10. Ayala (5-7-4) — Let’s face, this is a shocker. I thought the Bulldogs would straighten everyone out in league, but they may miss the playoffs after reaching the CIF title game last year and returning the league’s best player, Makenzie Doniak.
