INSIDE THE RANKINGS:

The much-anticipated Stockton Classic Invitational didn’t give us the No. 1 vs. No. 2 matchup we wanted between Marin Catholic and then-undefeated No. 2 St. Francis-Sacramento. However, it did further solidify Marin Catholic as the undisputed No. 1. The Wildcats went 4-0 at the tournament and won the Gold Bracket title over Central Section-power Clovis North-Fresno.

As for St. Francis-Sacramento, it dropped just two spots after losing a pair of games at the Classic. Both losses were to Top 10 teams, No. 8 Palo Alto and No. 3 Mitty-San Jose. Sacred Heart Cathedral-S.F. takes over the No. 2 spot, for at least one week. Life happens fast in the West Catholic Athletic League.

Other notable movers after two weeks of action: Nevada Union-Grass Valley continues its climb with another four-spot jump up to No. 12. And California-San Ramon is now inside the Top 10, settling at No. 9 after taking control of a tight East Bay Athletic League race.
