Hot squads on the move up include Franklin of Elk Grove, Sierra of Manteca and Heritage of Romoland. Still No. 1 are De La Salle, Santa Margarita, Placer, Serra of Gardena, Marin Catholic, Valley Center, Central Catholic and Sierra Canyon.

Note: This will be the final post on the ESPN Cal-Hi Sports page. This week’s State Stat Stars will be collected but won’t be posted until the following week in combination with the following week’s top performers.

This closure is due to the discontinuation of ESPNHS. We have had a lot of great experiences being part of the greatest sports media company in the world. Beginning with the Top 25 Weekend Scoreboard on Saturday, Sept. 15 all new updates will be available on a temporary blog.

For instructions on how to get to the new blog, we’ll have everything ready to go on Saturday morning and will send the link on our Twitter page @CalHiSports. Feel free to email markjtennis@gmail.com or go to our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/CalHiSportscom/162897664162

With assistance from Harold Abend and Paul Muyskens, here are the Week 3 rankings for each of California’s CIF bowl game divisions (previous ranking in parentheses):

All rankings through games played Saturday night, Sept. 1. Check back later this week for Week 2 CIF State Bowl Game rankings and for the next State Stat Stars of the Week. If you check back and no longer see Cal-Hi Sports content on an ESPN page, please go to our twitter page @CalHiSports or our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/pages/CalHiSportscom/162897664162 for updates.

1. (1) DE LA SALLE (CONCORD) 1-0
Why This Ranking: The three-time defending CIF Open Division champions have not lost to a California team since 2008 and showed little signs of a drop from last year in the first game.
Weekend Result: After going to two overtimes to beat defending CIF Central Coast Section Division I champ Bellarmine of San Jose in last year’s opener, the Spartans scored on their second play and had little difficulty in beating the Bells 41-7. Tiapepe Vitale had 15 carries for 181 yards and three touchdowns. New quarterback Chris Williams rushed for two scores and had a 58-yard TD pass to Austin Hooper in which Hooper broke several tackles.
Up Next: This year’s game against an out-of-state foe comes Friday at home against Mullen Prep of Denver. Mullen arrives after getting a 14-13 win in a much-hyped game against Valor Christian of Highlands Ranch that drew NFL QB Peyton Manning to the sidelines. Coach Bob Ladouceur expects his team will get a much stiffer challenge than what Bellarmine presented.
