THROUGH WEEK 2
There are no changes to our top three, though it is clear right now that this is a two-horse race, with the early dominance displayed by both Valley Christian and Serra. Los Gatos and Sacred Heart Prep both move up after registering solid wins last week, while other big risers are Half Moon Bay and Seaside, with the latter leaping all the way from outside our rankings into the top 20.Note: Last week's rankings in parentheses
