Redondo Union had been a unanimous No. 1 in last week’s voting and still retained three first-place votes despite the head-to-head loss. The Sea Kings (7-2) received 16 first-place votes.
The other big mover in the rankings this week is Agoura (5-4), which has won four of its last five after an 0-3 start. Last week, the Chargers beat Both Oak Park and Chaminade, which are currently ranked Nos. 4 and 5. They were rewarded with a boost from No. 13 all the way to No. 6.
Chaminade lost this week to both Oak Park and Agoura but slipped only one spot and still sits ahead of Agoura in the rankings.
