There were no changes in the Top 10 of the MaxLaxLA boys coaches poll this week, after No. 1 Palos Verdes recovered from an early deficit and beat No. 2 Oaks Christian on Friday. Both teams held their spots at Nos. 1 and 2.

The Sea Kings (11-1) received all 32 first-place votes, with Oaks Christian (24), Harvard Westlake (4) and Loyola (5) sharing the 32 second-place votes and finishing Nos. 2-4.

This week’s poll expanded from 20 teams to 25 to better account for the number of teams that will be offered spots in one of the two postseason tournaments in May. The LA Championship Tournament will seed 16 teams, and the LA Invitational will seed eight more. By expanding the voting, the seeding committee can begin to see how the coaches view teams that will be under consideration for those last four playoff berths.

Peninsula, Hart, Simi Valley, Santa Monica and Dos Pueblos currently sit in the Nos. 21-25 spots with four weeks remaining.
