Baseball Rankings: Bonita reclaims top spot, Sierra Vista moves to No. 2

Tribune Top Ten Baseball Rankings
1. Bonita (10-1) — Went 4-1 in the Anaheim Lions tournament, beating St. John Bosco, Chino and Tesoro.
2. Sierra Vista (9-1) — The Dons may not lose a game in the Montview, so expect them to be highly ranked the rest of the season.
3. South Hills (9-5) — Avoided finishing last in the Boras Classic by winning the 15th place game over Loyola, 8-1. But guess what, Northview transfer shortstop Jacob Amaya becomes eligible this week.

5. Covina (8-4) — Has won six straight since an 8-0 loss to South Hills.
6. Glendora (9-7) — As bad as it looks, the Tartans can turn things around visiting South Hills on Wednesday.
7. Northview (9-4-1) — Its 2-1 in the Valle Vista with a big game against Covina on Friday.
8. Damien (4-7) — Like South Hills, it went 1-3 in the Boras Classic, losing to Notre Dame 9-6 to finish 12th.
9. Wilson (5-2) — Wildcats should battle it out all season with Northview and Covina for VVL title.
10. Bishop Amat (5-10) — Everyone understands Amat plays a tough schedule, but sooner or later you have to start winning on a consistent basis.
