There could be a lot of changes next week, but this week the first 15 teams from last week are the same. Only newcomers are Heritage of Brentwood and Canyon of Anaheim.

The next two weeks of the state top 20 softball rankings are especially tricky because there are so many important games on Tuesdays. Our aim has been to get the new rankings posted at least a few hours before those games are played.

This week’s most important Tuesday game is No. 2 Pacifica of Garden Grove playing No. 8 Royal of Simi Valley in the CIF Southern Section Division 1 playoffs. That score won’t be included in this week’s top 20, but we’ll have updated info when the next divisional state rankings are compiled.

Vanessa Alvarez (Archbishop Mitty, San Jose)
The Cal-bound Monarchs’ ace opened the Livermore Stampede with a five-inning perfect game in a 10-0 win over California of San Ramon. Despite getting roughed up by Amador Valley in a 8-1 loss in the semis, she still had solid numbers from the circle and at the plate. At the plate leading off, she was 10-for-18 with three doubles, two RBIs, five runs scored, a walk and three stolen bases.
