: : : : So here was someone's predication on 8/3/2016

: : : : 1.Los Altos-Lost the league championship on the last day last year. All top players return.
: : : : 2. Duarte- Made all the way to the final last year. Let see if they play any of the other SGV teams.
: : : : 3. Covina-They return their top 3 players.
: : : : 4. DBar- 2 All CIF'ers coming back. Decent big.
: : : : 5. Walnut-Still young but looked solid this summer. Will contend for Hac League.
: : : : 6. Bonita-Physical style will keep them in games.
: : : : 7. South Hills-Lost 4 starters, but help is supposed to be on the way.
: : : : 8. Glendora-Lets see if they believe their own hype.
: : : : 9. Rowland-Lets see if there is a carry over from last year.
: : : : 10. Amat- Can they ever be Amat of old?
: : : : 11. West Covina - Didn't see them but heard they were solid.
: : : : 12. Arroyo-Best in their league.
: : : : 13. San Dimas- Could give teams trouble because of their size.

: : : : Here are the rankings via MaxPreps:

: : : : HS Name Nation State W-L
: : : : 1 Rowland 408 43 9-1
: : : : 2 Covina 754 88 9-2
: : : : 3 Glendora 1014 107 8-1
: : : : 4 Mark Keppel 1203 128 7-2
: : : : 5 Walnut 1299 140 8-2
: : : : 6 Los Altos 1463 161 6-2
: : : : 7 St. Paul 1508 167 6-3
: : : : 8 Diamond Bar 1589 179 10-1
: : : : 9 Cantwell 1600 181 5-3
: : : : 10 Whittier Christ 1900 221 9-2
: : : : 11 Ayala 2136 244 5-5
: : : : 12 West Covina 2159 250 7-3
: : : : 13 Bonita 2211 254 6-3
: : : : 14 Duarte 2229 256 8-3
: : : : 15 El Rancho 2230 257 3-3
: : : : 16 Arroyo 4589 512 5-6
: : : : 17 South Hills 6119 679 2-6
: : : : 18 San Dimas 6251 693 3-6

: : : : Is this a true reading so far?

: : :
: : : I barely know who any of those teams are, let alone seen them play.

: : : But what I can tell you is the MaxPreps rankings are still out of whack because not enough teams have played enough games to get an even somewhat accurate ranking.

: : : For instance, Buena is 3 in CA? No. Village Christian is 7? JW North 8? I don't think so. And you can keep going but you get the point.

: : : Gotta give it another couple weeks, maybe January 10 for them to get closer to reality.

: : You can't really go by Maxpreps. Most of these teams will play each other in tournaments or in league. So in January it will start to become clearer. I have seen most of these teams. Ayala is not SGV, so pull them out and insert Amat. Glendora is also to high, they are more like 6 or 7. Then bump everyone else up a spot. San Dimas and Arroyo?

: I know Ayala is not SGV, but they are in the same division as DB, Bonita, and South Hills. They are a decent team and thought they should be in the mix a bit. Does anyone still think that Covina is going to throne Rowland in Valle Vista?

I think Rowland is the #1 team in the valley because of a great player in Tianna. I think Covina loses to them but Rowland and Covina are the top 2 teams in the valley.
