CITYWIDE — Both St. Monica and Santa Monica are ranked No. 9 in their respective divisions in football, it was announced this week.
Fresh off a 33-21 win over Santa Fe League rival St. Genevieve, St. Monica retained its No. 9 ranking in the CIF-Southern Section Northeast Division.
Same goes for Samohi, which was ranked No. 9 last week as well. Samohi was ranked as high as No. 4 in the Western Division, but three straight losses have sent them down the poll.
Mission Prep sits at No. 1 in the Northeast Division and Lompoc holds the top spot in the Western.
St. Monica (5-2 overall) faces St. Anthony Friday at Clark Field in Long Beach. Samohi (3-3) hosts Beverly Hills, also on Friday. Both games begin at 7 p.m.
