Sorry for getting this posted later than normal. It was a complicated week for the voters, with a tough decision to make at No. 1 that led to quite a spilt in the vote as De La Salle pulls into the No. 1 spot by a point over O’Dowd. Really, what sets DLS apart is the win over Sheldon that came just days after Sheldon beat a Sacramento team that O’Dowd lost to. Of course, we were sent searching for a new No. 1 after Salesian first lost to St. Joseph Notre Dame and then had to forfeit its first 16 wins. That led to a tough call to decide what to do with Salesian, which ultimately dropped to No. 10 despite its official 2-17 record.
