Last week’s victory by the Westlake girls over visiting Palos Verdes pushed the Warriors past the Sea Kings and into the No. 2 spot in this week’s MaxLaxLA girls coaches poll, one of only three small changes in the weekly voting.

Redondo Union remains a unanimous No. 1, receiving all 18 first-place votes. Westlake is No. 2 and Palos Verdes No. 3, although six voters had those two teams reversed, with PV receiving six second-place votes despite last week’s head-to-head loss to Westlake.

Further down the voting, Dos Pueblos moved up one spot to No. 18 after posting victories over Thacher, La Reina and Royal. The Chargers remain one spot behind Channel League opponent Cate School, despite a head-to-head win over Cate. The teams play each other for the second time Tuesday.

Finally, Culver City also moved up one spot to No. 23, ahead of Royal. The Centaurs beat Wilson and Peninsula, while Royal lost three games. The move is significant as playoffs approach, as only 24 teams will be selected for the two postseason tournaments.
