It’s already been quite a season in Southern Section girls’ volleyball, with four top teams emerging: Redondo, Marymount, Mater Dei and Sierra Canyon. Those are the top four teams in this week’s Southern Section Division 1/2 volleyball rankings.

In football, unbeaten Mater Dei continues to hold down No. 1 in Division 1/2. The Monarchs are on a collision course to face unbeaten St. John Bosco on Oct. 25 at St. John Bosco. The Braves had a scare last week against Servite and face another challenge from host JSerra on Friday.
