6 Pomona Record: 15-5, 3-1.  Lost to Los Altos on Friday night. in a Miramonte League game.  A solid start with a slight stumble. Watch for Odell Howard, Darnell Buchanon and Spencer Smith. Next up: @ home with Charter Oak 1/23.
7 Notre Dame (S.O.) Record: 16-4, 4-2.  Not in danger in this division, but beaten by Loyola and by Harvard-Westlake, this is turning out to be a streaky team. Cody Pearson, Mike Luderer, and Ruben Sanchez lead.  Next up: Hosting St. Francis in a Mission League game 1/24.
8 Costa Mesa Record: 12-7, 2-2.  Beat Laguna Beach on Friday.  Chad Vakili, David Conte and Mike Payne have formed the main offensive core for Costa Mesa in the preseason. An improving team. Next Up: Corona del Mar on 1/24 at home.
9 Riverside ML King Record: 13-5, 2-1.  Lost to Rubidoux last week but this is a team playing without any seniors. Marvin Lea and Leon Rosborough have been the impetus for King's good fortune.  Next Up: @ Sunbelt League rival Bloomington on 1/23.

14 Morningside Record: 7-8, 3-4.  Early preseason and league losses will be deceptive due to their tough schedule against top teams in higher divisions.  Marlon Brisco, Dave Payne, Daniel Campbell, Marques Calcote lead. Next Up: @ Mira Costa 1/24.
