Ratings Drops: Previous No. 9 Morningside of Inglewood (lost to No. 3 Culver City, 9-6). Note: The Monarchs actually played well enough to merit not having to drop from this week's rankings. It's just that Oakdale and Sonora will be playing in two weeks in a huge rivalry game and we were more inclined to get Sonora in there than to leave in Morningside. The Oakdale-Sonora game is on track to be the state's only 9-0 vs. 9-0 regular season final for that week, although this week there's a 9-0 vs. 9-0 game in the Central Section (see below).
