TOP 10 SAN DIEGO SECTION GIRLS BASKETBALL RANKINGS
Week of Feb. 10, 2020
BY MARLON WELLS
It was a very interesting week in the San Diego Section, but there wasn’t much movement in the Top 10 rankings. The only change is last week’s No. 9 team Serra upset No. 8 Westview, so they flip flopped spots this week. La Jolla Country Day & Cathedral sealed up league titles, while a few other leagues will come down to the final games this week.
1. La Jolla Country Day 26-1
Te-hina Paopao received her McDonald’s All-American jersey this past Friday, and guess who was in the house to present her with it? Another former McDonald’s All-American and former Torrey Kelsey Plum. The Torrey’s won both of their last week by beating two top ten ranked teams. The first game saw the Torrey’s down #3 Bonita Vista 69-40 and then they came back on their senior night to beat their long time rival #4 Bishop’s 81-45. The Torrey’s won the Coastal league with the win and will be the #1 seed in the Open division playoffs come out this weekend.
NEXT UP: 2/14/20 vs Tri City Christian
2. Cathedral Catholic 16-10
The Dons went 2-0 last week by defeating Mira Mesa 66-18 and then beat league rival Christian 65-52. Cathedral wrapped up their second league title in a row. This team will definitely challenge La Jolla Country Day for the Open Division title.
NEXT UP: 2/13/20 vs Scripps Ranch
3. Bonita Vista 18-8
Bonita Vista escaped a huge upset this past Saturday against a very game Mission Hills squad, but the Barons held their composure and squeaked out a double overtime win 75-74. Bonita Vista went 3-1 last week losing to #1 LJCD 40-69 , but bounced back and won 3 straight. Beating Montgomery 85-24, Olympian 66-23 and like we said before Mission Hills 75-74. The Barons have a key match-up against Mater Dei Catholic which will determine the league championship.
NEXT UP: 2/10/20 vs Mater Dei, 2/12/20 Eastlake
4. Bishop’s 14-9
The Knights went 1-1 last week dropping to #1 La Jolla Country Day 45-81, then came back to defeat #10 Mt. Miguel 74-41. Bishop’s is looking to make a statement in the Open Division playoffs.

Christian couldn’t come up with the win against its rival Cathedral Catholic suffering a second loss of the season to the Dons 52-65. The Patriots did beat a very scrappy Scripps Ranch team by the score of 68-57. Christian will get a chance to avenge an early loss against Serra this week.

NEXT UP: 2/10/20 vs Carlsbad, 2/13/20 vs Torrey Pines
8. Serra 15-8
Nobody wants to play the Lady Q’s. Former McDonald’s All-American is coaching Serra up as the regular season is coming to an end. Serra went 2-0 this week beat Scripps Ranch 61-53 and then had the upset win over previous #8 Westview 52-48. The Lady Q’s are a real threat in Division I.
NEXT UP: 2/11/20 vs Christian, 2/13/20 vs Mira Mesa
