Oceanside was the unanimous choice of 19 voters as the No. 1 San Diego Section team in the final UT-San Diego poll.
The Pirates are fifth in Cal-Hi Sports‘ state rankings with a state playoff game against Fresno Edison this week and potentially a State Division I championship game in two weeks.
The Pirates were helped in the Cal-Hi poll when some teams ahead of Oceanside throughout the season were toppled in their respective section playoffs.
Conversely, Oceanside played a tough intersectional schedule, waded through 13 opponents without a loss, and could move higher in the season’s final two weeks.
Other San Diego Section teams in the top 25 were El Capitan, now 17th after moving up from 20th, and Helix, now 24th, down from 21st. Mission Hills, Cathedral, and St. Augustine enjoyed, if that’s the right word, “On the Bubble” status.
El Capitan, second to Oceanside locally, plays Paso Robles, and Christian, eighth locally, plays Capistrano St. Margaret in other state playoffs.
