We have a new No. 1 for the fourth straight week as Castro Valley surges on the strength of its win over O’Dowd. The Trojans now have beaten two of the current top four teams (O’Dowd, Oakland), which was enough to bump them up. Tough to see De La Salle drop to No. 2 after having a great week, but it’s more about Castro Valley moving up than the Spartans deserving to move down.
|1. Castro Valley (4)||19-1||102||3|
|2. De La Salle (3)||17-2||101||2|
|3. Bishop O’Dowd||16-4||91||2|
|5. St. Joseph Notre Dame||17-5||75||5|
|7. El Cerrito||15-5||65||7|
|10. San Ramon Valley||18-2||44||9|
|11. Newark Memorial||15-6||36||6|
|12. Deer Valley||15-5||29||11|
