Those baffled how the Serra League could be the number one rated league in the state by Calpreps but voted the fourth-best team in the Pac-5 by a panel of three coaches shouldn’t be surprised by the outcome. The football advisory committee consisted of Westlake coach Jim Benkert (Marmonte League), coach Jason Negro of St. John Bosco (Trinity League) and coach Raul Lara of Long Beach Poly (Moore League). Lara told the L.A. Times’ Eric Sondheimer that he ranked the Serra second behind the Trinity but got out voted by the other two. The final league rankings were: 1. Trinity, 2. South Coast, 3. Marmonte, 4. Serra, 5. Moore. By the South Coast rated ahead of the Serra, Tesoro earned an at-large over Crespi because based on the points system, strength of league is worth two points and that made the difference.
