St. Margaret’s Soars in Western U.S. Rankings

A second Southern Section Championship in three years earned the St. Margaret’s Episcopal School Tartans some well deserved respect in the Under Armour/IL High School Regional Experts Poll.  Overlooked in the poll just one week earlier, the Tartans rocketed all the way to No. 4 in the West after defeating Palos Verdes in the Southern Section Championship game.  Orange County teams account for 30% of the Top 10 teams with No. 5 Foothill and No. 6 Corona del Mar High School parked right behind the Tartans in the poll.

No. 1 St. Ignatius Prep is the only other California team to make the Top 10:
