The top six teams remained the same in this week’s coaches poll, with Loyola (eight first-place votes), Palos Verdes (six first-place votes) and Westlake (one first-place vote) holding down the Top 3.
The biggest mover in the poll was Mira Costa (7-1), which dropped from No. 7 to No. 9 after losing 16-4 at Crespi.
The Mustangs also missed two opportunities to bolster their resume when two scheduled games — vs. Oak Park (power failure with Costa leading 6-3 with 3:05 left in the first half) and Newbury Park (miscommunication in scheduling process) — were cancelled.
