Previous: 9

10. Valor Christian (Calif.), 2-0

The Eagles dominated their first two opponents, opening with a 16-3 win over Highlands Ranch (Colo.) and then rolling to a stunning 19-5 win over Kent Denver (Colo.). Valor could end up being the best team in the state with eight Division I commits. Previous: NR
