New Cal-Hi Sports Softball Top 20

May, 9, 2012
Pacifica of Garden Grove and Norco still lead the pack as the regular season in many places in the state ends this week.

The first seven positions in this week’s new state softball top 20 remained in place, but there was some scrambling at the bottom.

Tuesday games are not normally taken into account for the weekly rankings, but it was impossible not to check a couple of key scores. That ended up helping Camarillo join the top 20 as a newcomer at No. 19 and also enabled Del Oro of Loomis to stay in at No. 20 despite taking a loss last week to Roseville.

1. (1) Pacifica (Garden Grove) 25-1
The Mariners remain the top team in the state (they also are No. 1 in the POWERADE FAB 50) after an 11-1 road win over Tustin and a 7-2 home win over Western of Anaheim. Nicole DeWitt led the way in the first win of the week as she homered and drove in four runs. Pacifica looks to wrap up an undefeated Empire League championship this week.
