6. Orange Vista
7. Newbury Park
8. Mira Costa
9. Ayala
10. Los Alamitos
Others: Burbank, Claremont, Millikan, Oxnard Pacifica, Redondo Union
Quick Take: LB Wilson is the favorite for the 2022 team title, which would be their first since 2006.  The trenches will be in the sprints and jumps regarding those top squads with Wilson's holding the overwhelming edge in the relays.     

1. Golden Valley
2. JW North

4. Dana Hills
5. Ventura
6. Mater Dei
6. Agoura
8. Mission Viejo
9. Murrieta Valley
10. Anaheim Canyon
Others: Chino, El Dorado, Glendora, South Torrance
Quick Take: GV is loaded with the potential to earn major points in the jumps and sprints. On paper, JW North has enough returning to hold off Thousand Oaks while not much separates the rest of the ranked group.  

1. Harvard Westlake
2. Sherman Oaks Notre Dame
3. JSerra
4. Calabasas
5. Orange Lutheran
6. La Canada
7. South Pasadena
8. Santa Margarita
9. Corona del Mar
10. Monrovia
Others: Hillcrest, Moorpark, Oak Park, Palos Verdes 
Quick Take: HW should roll to another divisional title, with almost half their points coming from the vertical and horizontal jumps.  Notre Dame (SO) should earn 36 points in the throws alone while their relays should be enough to hold off the middle-distance strength of JSerra. Calabasas comes back to Div. 3 and will look to snag the runner-up plaque with everybody returning in their relays.

2. Serra (Gardena)
3. Muir

6. Bishop Alemany
7. Marlborough

10. Archer School for Girls

Quick Take: Driven by points in the distances, Oaks Christian should roll to another overwhelming title and perhaps, score over 100 points again. Serra will dominate the sprints with Muir within striking range.
