Rest not only can cure what ails you but can help in the rankings.
Oceanside and Mission Hills, idle last week as they ramped up for this week’s battle of the Highway 78 corridor, each was elevated in Cal-Hi Sports’ weekly State Top 25.
Oceanside moved from eighth to seventh and was positioned at fifth in the South Division I ratings.
Mission Hills went from 13th to 11th. Cathedral and Helix more or less enjoyed “On the Bubble” status.
El Capitan ranks first in DIII South and Christian is first in DIV South.
Cal-Hi’s First 20:
|1.||Bellflower St. John Bosco||4-1||Southern||1|
|2.||Concord De La Salle||6-0||North Coast||2|
|3.||Santa Ana Mater Dei||5-0||Southern||3|
|5.||Mission Hills Alemany||5-0||Southern||5|
|9.||San Juan Capistrano JSerra||5-0||Southern||11|
|10.||Long Beach Poly||5-1||Southern||12|
|11.||Mission Hills||4-1||San Diego||13|
|14.||West Hills Chaminade||5-1||Southern||6|
|19.||Pleasanton Foothill||5-0||North Coast||21|
Although this week’s matchup is nonleague, the game has season-long implications.
The Avocado West Pirates are hoping for high seeds in San Diego Section and Southern California postseason events.
A loss will severely damage Oceanside’s chances and a loss will essentially end any postseason hope beyond the San Diego Section for Mission Hills.
