Current  # Previous # Team State  Record Notes
1 1 St. Ignatius California  (15-1) They have impressive resume which wins over an assortment of teams throughout the country highlighted by a 10-8 over Landon (MD).
2 2 Foothill-Santa Ana California  (19-1) Ended their regular season with one loss on the season to Lincoln-Sudbury (MA).  OCLA playoffs with a potential Foothill vs CDM match up.
3 3 Cherry Creek Colorado  (14-1) They have handled all in-state competition and have strong out of state wins to complete their resume.
4 4 Corona Del Mar California  (17-0) Perfect on the season with only only two games within 5 goals.  They have San Clemente up next in the OCLA.
5 6 Regis Jesuit Colorado  (13-2) They are the #2 team in Colorado in what looks to be a 3 team race.  They hold the edge over Mountain Vista because of there 10-9 win on 3/21.
6 7 Mountain Vista Colorado  (11-1) Beat Kent Denver and Ararpahoe to lock up the #3 spot in Colorado.  Looking forward to a possible Regis Jesuit vs MV rematch in the playoffs.
7 8 Coronado Red Nevada  (16-1) Finish the regular season beating the Nevada’s #2-4 team each for the third time of the season.  Lone loss was to Claremont School from Canada in OT.
8 9 Corner Canyon Utah  (17-1) Lone loss was to their in-state rival, Park City, but their strength of schedule outside of Utah keeps them higher in the rankings.
9 12 St. Margarets California  (17-3) Got tripped up by Bellarmine Prep over spring break and their other two losses are against the #2 and #4 team in Top 20.
10 5 Mercer Island Washington  (17-1) Their undefeated season was undone by Bellevue last week.  Issaquah on 5/8 to end the regular season.
11 14 San Ramon Valley California  (14-2) Last game of the regular season on 5/8 against Monte-Vista Danville.  They have put together a solid season so far.
12 13 Park City Utah  (18-1) They are the #1 team in Utah after their 7-6 win over Corner Canyon but loss to Coronado Red keeps them a few spots below CC in Top 20.  I will be exciting to see the rematch between these team in the state playoffs.
13 10 Eastside Catholic Washington  (13-2) Loss to Mercer Island and win over Bellevue has them hovering as a 2/3 in state in what looks to be a very competitive playoff race.
14 16 Torrey Pines California  (12-7) Seven losses are the most of any Top 20 team but have played arguably the hardest schedule in the west.  Cathedral Catholic to end the regular season.
15 N/R Bellevue Washignton  (14-3) Incredible week beating Mercer Island and Issaquah last week!  Could be finding it’s groove at the rigth time of the season.
16 11 West Linn Oregon  (10-4) They split games with Lakeridge but their win over Sunset gives them the edge in state.
17 17 Lakeridge Oregon  (10-3) Split with West Linn and dropped a game to Sunset.  No teams with winning records until playoffs.
18 18 Kent Denver Colorado  (10-5) Tough stretch of three straight losses to the #1-3 teams in Colorado.  Still a solid team with a chance to upset someone in the playoffs.
19 15 Issaquah Washington  (15-2) Loss to Bellevue in OT drops them in the rankings.  Huge game with playoff implications against Mercer Island on 5/8.
20 20 Desert Vista Arizona  (16-1) They play Chapparal in the state championship on 5/9.  This is a rematch of a 14-8 Desert Vista win in the first game of the season.
