BIGGEST MOVERS: Amador Valley is back in the top spot after the first two weeks of April. The Dons’ only three losses are to SoCal stalwarts. Elk Grove was actually the biggest mover, joining the Top 5. However, the No. 4 Thundering Herd are only likely to stick around if they can top No. 5 Sheldon for the second time this season when the two square off on April 19. Another key matchup comes on April 17 with a Bay Valley Athletic League opener between No. 3 Freedom and No. 16 Heritage.
