EL CAJON (1-15-16)

  1. MOUNT MIGUEL (11-4) – The Matadors will attempt to hold off West Hills in their perennial drive to the league championship. However, their victory lane won’t be so smooth as coach ROBBIE SANDOVAL’s squad will have to face a major challenge from West Hills (13-3). Sandoval’s crew has posted a 591-102 record during his 16 year career at Mount Miguel.
  2. WEST HILLS (13-3) – Talk about an early challenge. . . The Wolf Pack will face Mount Miguel in Friday’s (Jan. 15) opening night of league play at 5:30 in Spring Valley. This could be a key victory for the Pack, which has eyes toward walking out of the gym with a league championship.
  3. GRANITE HILLS (8-7) – Not to be lost in the shadows of perennial powers Mount Miguel and West Hills are the Eagles, who definitely have the firepower of shooting their way to the top in the Grossmont Hills League race.
  4. HELIX (3-10) – It’s very rare that the Helix Highlanders can be dismissed from the Grossmont Hills League race at the opening tipoff. But the Highlanders, who have no sure-handed scorers can only hope to catch fire down the road.
  5. MONTE VISTA (3-12) – The Monarchs are lacking offense in their bid to get out of the cellar.



  1. GROSSMONT (14-3) – The surprising Foothillers have been tough during tournament play and hope to continue that momentum into league activity. But the Grossmont Valley circuit is no simple challenge. A title is within reach, but nothing comes easy in this loop.
  2. STEELE CANYON (9-4) – The Cougars are another team climbing up the victory pole and could sneak their way to a league title.
  3. VALHALLA (6-6) – The Norsemen continue to build their offensive structure, but may be a year or two away.
  4. SANTANA (6-8) – The Sultans haven’t shown any victory flash this year.
  5. EL CAPITAN (4-10) – The Vaqueros have one of the best players in the league in MARIE COOK, but have little else.
  6. EL CAJON VALLEY (10-8) – The Braves count on LEANNA WATSON, who is one of the top scorers in the circuit, but they have little left to offer.



  1. CORONADO (2-0, 3-4)
  2. CRAWFORD (1-1, 10-3)
  3. CLAIREMONT (1-1, 10-6)
  4. MADISON (1-2, 5-5)
  5. POINT LOMA (1-0, 3-7)
  6. CHRISTIAN (0-3, 3-8) – The only muscle the Patriots have is MARISSA GILES, who is averaging 15.2 points per game, but her team may pick up a win or two down the road, which could lift them out of the cellar.
