Three new teams take over top spots in CA state bowl divisions
Buhach Colony and Lompoc move up after No. 1 team loses. It’s a bit more complicated, though, with Cardinal Newman going to No. 1 in D3 North.

Here are the third regular season rankings of the 2011 campaign (after games of Sept. 17; previous ranking in parentheses):

Division I North
1. (1) De La Salle (Concord) 2-0
2. (2) Bellarmine (San Jose) 1-1
3. (3) Lincoln (Stockton) 4-0
4. (4) Pleasant Grove (Elk Grove) 3-1
5. (5) California (San Ramon) 3-0
6. (12) Pittsburg 3-0
7. (Cool Serra (San Mateo) 3-0
8. (9) Palma (Salinas) 2-0
9. (13) Nevada Union (Grass Valley) 4-0
10. (14) San Ramon Valley (Danville) 2-1
11. (15) James Logan (Union City) 3-0
12. (NR) Archbishop Mitty (San Jose) 2-1
13. (10) Valley Christian (San Jose) 1-1
14. (7) Palo Alto 1-1
15. (11) Oak Grove (San Jose) 2-1
Drops: Previous No. 6 Granite Bay.
Others to watch: Freedom (Oakley) 3-0, Granite Bay 3-1, Monterey Trail (Elk Grove) 1-2, Oak Ridge (El Dorado Hills) 3-1, St. Francis (Mountain View) 1-2.
Outlook: While De La Salle’s game against St. Thomas Aquinas of Florida later this week has national ranking implications, it may not mean much for the CIF bowl games. St. Thomas Aquinas is the No. 2 team in the nation so a loss isn’t likely going to cause the Spartans to drop in next week’s bowl game rankings. The best chances for ranked teams to suffer defeats will come when the West Catholic Athletic League (Bellarmine is a member) and East Bay Athletic League (DLS, San Ramon Valley and others) races get underway. For an upset alert this weekend, we’d say watch out for No. 3 Lincoln against St. Mary’s of Stockton. The Trojans have had trouble beating the Rams in recent years.

Division I South
1. (1) Servite (Anaheim) 3-0
2. (2) Mission Viejo 2-1
3. (3) Long Beach Poly (Long Beach) 3-0
4. (4) St. Bonaventure (Ventura) 3-0
5. (5) Centennial (Corona) 1-1
6. (7) Santa Margarita (Rancho SM) 3-0
7. (Cool Crespi (Encino) 3-0
8. (9) Oaks Christian (Westlake Village) 1-1
9. (10) Westlake (Westlake Village) 2-0
10. (12) Lutheran (Orange) 3-0
11. (11) Eastlake (Chula Vista) 4-0
12. (13) Vista Murrieta (Murrieta) 2-0
13. (15) St. John Bosco (Bellflower) 3-0
14. (16) San Clemente 3-0
15. (14) Clovis 3-0
16. (17) Carson 1-1
17. (19) Bishop Amat (La Puente) 2-1
18. (NR) Bakersfield 3-0
19. (NR) Loyola (Las Angeles) 3-0
20. (18) Mater Dei (Santa Ana) 0-2
Drops: Previous No. 6 Alemany (Mission Hills); No. 20 Central (Fresno).
Others to watch: Alemany (Mission Hills) 2-1, Canyon (Canyon Country) 2-0, Dorsey (Los Angeles) 3-0, Edison (Huntington Beach) 3-0, J.W. North (Riverside) 2-0, Lakewood 2-1, Mira Mesa (San Diego) 2-1, Norco 2-0, Notre Dame (Sherman Oaks) 3-0, Poway 3-0, Rancho Cucamonga 2-0, Redlands East Valley (Redlands) 2-0, Upland 3-0.
Outlook: Servite holds down the No. 1 spot in this division for a second straight week with two showdowns on tap for this week. One will be in Mission Viejo where the No. 2 Diablos host the No. 3 Long Beach Poly Jackrabbits. The other is in Westlake Village where No. 8 Oaks Christian hosts No. 4 St. Bonaventure. The matchup between No. 13 St. John Bosco and No. 19 Loyola also is very intriguing. It may show just how strong the Braves are this season or how much improved the Cubs are after their sub-par 3-7 campaign.

Division II North
1. (2) Buhach Colony (Atwater) 4-0
2. (3) Del Oro (Loomis) 3-1
3. (1) Grant (Sacramento) 2-2
4. (4) Folsom 3-1
5. (9) Elk Grove 4-0
6. (7) Paradise 3-0
7. (10) Oakdale 3-0
8. (Cool Foothill (Palo Cedro) 4-0
9. (NR) Los Gatos 2-0
10. (NR) Vacaville 2-1
Drops: Previous No. 5 St. Mary’s (Stockton), No. 6 Whitney (Rocklin).
Others to Watch: Leland (San Jose) 3-0, Casa Roble (Orangevale) 2-1, Manteca 3-0, Patterson 3-1, Roseville 3-1, Windsor 3-0.
Outlook: For now, Buhach Colony naturally moves to the top in place of Sacramento Grant. The Thunder are coming off a 12-1 season and without question have one of the top groups of linemen in the state. Still, their schedule has not been tough and that may not change until the playoffs. Del Oro, on the other hand, has lost its only game in overtime to Westlake of Westlake Village (D1) and has solid wins over Clovis West of Fresno and Oak Ridge. If Del Oro wins a few more big games, especially in the Sierra Foothill League, we can see this ranking flipping at the top before the end of the regular season. St. Mary’s had to drop out after its 35-0 loss to De La Salle, but the real reason was because Vacaville had to go in. The Bulldogs defeated a Granite Bay team that edged St. Mary’s in the first week. Los Gatos also went in as a newcomer after it knocked off D1 North ranked Oak Grove of San Jose.

Division II South
1. (1) Oceanside 2-1
2. (2) Helix (La Mesa) 2-1
3. (4) Chaminade (West Hills) 2-0
4. (5) La Habra 2-1
5. (6) Rancho Verde (Moreno Valley) 2-0
6. (7) Cajon (San Bernardino) 3-0
7. (Cool San Joaquin Memorial (Fresno) 2-0
8. (NR) Elsinore (Lake Elsinore) 3-0
9. (NR) Villa Park 3-0
10. (10) Serra (Gardena) 2-1
Drops: Previous No. 3 Cathedral Catholic (San Diego); No. 9 Tustin.
Others to Watch: Arroyo Grande 2-1, Cathedral Catholic (San Diego) 0-3, Citrus Hill (Perris) 3-0, Heritage (Menifee) 3-0, Palm Springs 3-0, Ridgeview (Bakersfield) 2-0, St. Augustine (San Diego) 2-0, St. Paul (Santa Fe Springs) 2-0, Summit (Fontana) 2-1, Tustin 1-2, West Covina 2-1.
Outlook: The margin of victory in Helix’s 48-14 triumph against Cathedral Catholic was enough to knock the Dons all the way out of this week’s rankings. That created room for Chaminade to move up one spot and for La Habra as well. Some will see that La Habra moved up after losing, but keep in mind that the loss was to D1 South No. 1 Servite of Anaheim and by just 24-16.

Division III North
1. (2) Cardinal Newman (Santa Rosa) 3-0
2. (1) Escalon 3-0
3. (4) Marin Catholic (Kentfield) 3-0
4. (3) Encinal (Alameda) 1-1
5. (5) Colfax 3-0
6. (6) Miramonte (Orinda) 2-0
7. (7) Carmel 2-0
8. (10) Salesian (Richmond) 3-0
9. (NR) Hilmar 3-1
10. (NR) Sutter 4-0
Drops: Previous No. 8 Monterey, No. 9 Union Mine (El Dorado).
Others to Watch: Bishop O’Dowd (Oakland) 1-2, Monterey 1-1, Ripon 4-0, Sacred Heart Cathedral (SF) 3-0, Terra Nova (Pacifica) 1-2, Union Mine (El Dorado) 1-2, Wheatland 3-0.
Outlook: The race between Cardinal Newman and Escalon has heated up to another level. For Escalon, bowl game rankings aside, last Friday’s 14-7 win over Patterson was significant because Patterson was the only team the Cougars lost to en route to last year’s CIF D3 state crown. The bad news for Escalon, however, is that Cardinal Newman rose up and posted a 35-28 triumph against Valley Christian of San Jose. That win would be similar to Escalon stepping up in class and beating nearby St. Mary’s of Stockton. Valley Christian, after all, was in the CIF Central Coast Section Open Division finals the last two years. We’ve said all along that Cardinal Newman is playing a stronger schedule than Escalon, but have added that it may still be very difficult for the CIF commissioners to not choose an unbeaten defending state champion. Even with that possibility, there’s really no choice but to move up Cardinal Newman into the No. 1 spot in this week’s bowl game rankings. Coach Paul Cronin’s team also is playing another CCS powerhouse on Friday at Palma of Salinas. Palma also may be superior to any foe that Escalon is playing during the season. This one could go back and forth all season long.

Division III South
1. (2) Lompoc 3-0
2. (3) Mt. Miguel (Spring Valley) 3-0
3. (4) Madison (San Diego) 3-0
4. (5) Washington (Easton) 2-0
5. (6) Paraclete (Lancaster) 2-1
6. (9) South (Torrance) 2-0
7. (7) Coalinga 3-0
8. (1) Monrovia 1-1
9. (NR) Cabrillo (Lompoc) 3-0
10. (NR) Beckman (Irvine) 1-1
Drops: Previous No. 8 Garden Grove, No. 10 Santa Ynez.
Others to Watch: Arroyo (El Monte) 3-0, Bishop 1-1, Bishop’s (La Jolla) 1-0, Cabrillo (Lompoc) 2-0, Campbell Hall (North Hollywood) 3-0, Carpinteria 3-0, Corona del Mar (Newport Harbor) 3-0, Covina 2-1, Maranatha (Sierra Madre) 3-0, Salesian (Los Angeles) 3-0, Santana (Santee) 3-0, Selma 2-0.
Outlook: Life is good in Lompoc these days. First, Lompoc High has now moved up to No. 1 in its state bowl game division. The Braves, who won their game last week 36-14 over Santa Barbara, benefitted from previous No. 1 Monrovia’s 33-20 loss to Arcadia. The city’s other high school, Cabrillo, also is doing quite well. The Conquistadors topped Dos Pueblos of Goleta 28-7 and went in as a newcomer in this week’s rankings. Lompoc’s big win continues to be the one by 38-28 against Arroyo Grande.

Division IV North
1. (1) Central Catholic (Modesto) 3-1
2. (2) LeGrand 3-0
3. (3) Ferndale 2-1
4. (5) Rio Vista 4-0
5. (7) Bradshaw Christian (Sacramento) 3-1
6. (Cool Hoopa Valley (Hoopa) 3-0
7. (9) St. Bernard (Eureka) 2-0
8. (6) Modesto Christian 2-2
9. (NR) Millennium (Tracy) 4-0
10. (10) Trinity (Weaverville) 3-1
Drops: Previous No. 4 Durham.
Others to Watch: Berean Christian (Walnut Creek) 2-1, California School for the Deaf (Fremont) 3-0, Durham 2-1, Hamilton (Hamilton City) 2-2, Modoc (Alturas) 1-2.
Outlook: Highlights of the week include a big welcome to Millennium of Tracy gaining a state ranking for the first time in school history. The Falcons moved up due to previous No. 4 Durham falling 28-26 to Hamilton. There’s also a big game brewing at Bradshaw Christian where the No. 5 Pride host No. 4 Rio Vista. Top-ranked Central Catholic also has a testy game against Los Banos. That was a team the Raiders lost to last season.

Division IV South
1. (1) Sierra Canyon (Chatsworth) 3-0
2. (4) Desert Christian (Lancaster) 3-0
3. (5) Boron 2-1
4. (6) Christian (El Cajon) 2-1
5. (Cool Grace Brethren (Simi Valley) 2-0
6. (NR) Santa Fe Christian (Solana Beach) 2-1
7. (NR) Bishop Diego (Santa Barbara) 1-1
8. (2) Parker (San Diego) 2-1
9. (9) Rio Hondo Prep (Arcadia) 2-1
10. (10) La Jolla Country Day 3-0
Drops: Previous No. 3 St. Margaret’s (SJ Capistrano), No. 7 Mission Prep (SLO, Calif..
Others to Watch: Brentwood (Los Angeles) 1-1, Chadwick (Palos Verdes) 1-1, Mission Prep (San Luis Obispo) 2-1, St. Margaret’s (SJ Capistrano) 0-2, View Park (Los Angeles) 0-2.
Outlook: There are now four teams from the CIF San Diego Section’s Coastal League listed in these rankings. We already had Christian of El Cajon, Parker of San Diego and La Jolla Country Day and did not drop Parker all the way out after a loss to Mar Vista of Imperial Beach. The fourth team is Santa Fe Christian, which has a loss to larger school Westview of San Diego but also has a win over large school Capistrano Valley of Mission Viejo. Last week, the Chiefs defeated Coronado 25-15. No. 1 Sierra Canyon, meanwhile, continued to dominate its schedule by swamping Village Christian of Sun Valley 58-13.

Yes, too early to talk about state playoffs. Premature? No. But looks as though right now SJM has the best odds being the #7 team in D2 right now should they run the tables. I see Ridgeview also listed as others to watch. But they are D3 here in the valley.
But hard to believe Washington Union, Garces and winner of Frontier/Clovis North aren't on there? I believe they probably would put them in D1 since Ridgeview a D3 team is moved to D2. Unfair? Yes. Even if Bakersfield beats Stockdale, Clovis in the playoffs, and Centennial who played Mission Viejo, I still don't think they have a shot at state being #18. BHS will have to beat Centennial more than 35-7 because that is how they will compare beings that is what Mission Viejo won by. Lots of teams in LA have to lose before that to happen. And even if they climb it the polls and end 1 of 3 unbeatens, they will eventually get the shaft. It's all speculation but interesting to talk about and easy to see how our divisional placements don't measure up to the state ones. Or give our kids a chance at that level. Maybe things will change. Who knows?

I guess I missed that because it said: 4. (5) Washington (Easton) 2-0

I thought maybe there was another Washington Easton in So Cal. Typo? Thanks for posting. Now SJM and Washington Union have the best shots should they run the table. Don't you think?

Looks like Washington Union has the best chance to be the first Central Valley team to be represented in the state championships if they can run the table... Thumbs Up Thumbs Up Thumbs Up
