East Bay boys volleyball notebook

Northgate remains the top team in the East Bay, coming out on top in the most recent Bay Area News Group’s coaches poll and the Broncos have rushed out to a perfect start in the Diablo Valley Athletic League. California replaces Amador Valley as the No. 2 team in the area. The Dons come in at No. 6 this week.


Foothill moves up a spot to No. 3 while Deer Valley climbs up two spots to No. 4. San Ramon Valley jumps three spots, moving to No. 5 in the biggest leap of the week, along with Granada which moves to No. 8. De La Salle stays in the top ten at No. 7, deservedly so after a 2-0 start in the East Bay Athletic League.
Mission San Jose, the kings of the Mission Valley Athletic League, at least early on, move up a spot to No. 9. Monte Vista, College Park, Campolindo, Heritage, Clayton Valley and Las Lomas round out teams 10 through 15.
