La Salle upset in playoffs, drops in rankings

By David Auguste

La Salle's run at back-to-back titles came to a screeching halt, as Fairfield's defense limited the squad to 30 points in the sectional finals. The loss snapped the team's 13-game win streak and sent the talented squad home packing. The loss was the lone blemish to our top 10 squads. Taft moves back in the top three, joining POWERADE FAB 50 squads Northland and Dunbar.

Here's a look at the top three teams:
1. Northland (21-1) — last week No. 1
2. Dunbar (24-0) — last week No. 2
3. Taft (18-4) — last week No. 3
