CIF RANKINGS: Not much respect here for the locals, but then, you gotta earn it …

This week’s CIf-SS Southern Section rankings don’t show a lot of local
teams among them, but then rollercoaster seasons — i.e. win two, lose
one; win three, lose two; win one, lose two — don’t stimulate the
voters to pay much attention.
In baseball, Cantwell Sacred Heart (14-4, 8-2 in league) is the only
area team ranked, but dropped from a solo No. 9 to a tie for No. 10 in
Division V, despite extending its win streak to six.
Whittier Christian (12-8, 5-1), had a 3-1 win over Alpha League leader
Brentwood sandwiched between victories over Crossroads for a three-win
week that gained a share of the league lead and earned the Heralds a
spot among “others receiving votes.” In softball, La Serna (15-2,
4-0) held steady at No. 3 in Division III, but La Mirada (19-2-1, 8-0),
despite clutch wins over Norwalk and John Glenn, slipped a notch to No.
9 in Division II, testimony that winning 15 in a row and 16 of 17 isn’t
as impressive as the loss if it happens late in the season.
Cantwell Sacred Heart (14-8, 5-0) is playing well enough to hold it’s
Camino Real League lead and No. 6 spot in Division VI, but not well
enough to move up.
In tennis, Whittier Christian remained No. 4 in Division V, and La Serna
cracked the poll at No. 10. Schurr, which had held No. 9 the past
three weeks, dropped out of the top 10 in Division IV.
In boys volleyball, El Rancho slipped a spot to No. 9 in Division III,
despite big wins last week over La Serna and Whittier, their main
challengers for the Del Rio League title. Whittier Christian was listed
again among others receiving votes.

    My son says that DRL Track & Field finals are on FRIDAY at Downey High, according to his coaches.

    But WDN reported that they are on THURSDAY.

    When are they? Thanks!!

    Condor Mom: That is correct. The Del Rio League track and field finals
    are Friday, instead of Thursday. Unfortunately, no one notified the
    Daily News of the change made “a couple of weeks ago due to a facility
    problem” with the use of Whittier College, according to a league
    spokesperson. The winter sports schedule from every DRL school sent to
    the Daily News listed the event as being on Thursday, it’s regular day
    for as long as anyone can remember.
    Thank you for the heads up.
