Other San Diego Section powers continue to languish in the ubiquitous group of “Teams on the Bubble.” Included are Cathedral (4-1), Helix (3-2), Oceanside (3-2), and Ramona (5-0). Oceanside, with losses only to the No. 4 and No. 16 teams, was dissed and not included.

Francis Parker benefited from Christian’s loss to Mission Bay in Week 6, climbing from fourth to third in D-IV, while Christian dropped from second to fifth. Santa Fe Christian, La Jolla Country Day, and The Bishop’s are on the bubble.
