L.A. South: The final Top 10

There were no south Los Angeles County schools involved in the state bowls, so the rankings remain as they did last week. The area's sectional champions were Narbonne (City Section Division I), West Covina (Southeast Division), Monrovia (Mid-Valley Division) and South East (City Section Division II). The final top 10 rankings:

1. (1) Narbonne (11-3)

The City Section Division I champions are favored to repeat in 2012, if only because they’ve got the section’s leading passer in Troy Williams (3,247 yards and 34 touchdowns).

2. (2) Long Beach Poly (10-2)

The Jackrabbits got their second straight Moore League championship but will have a lot of offensive talent to replace.

3. (3) St. John Bosco (8-4)

The third-place team from the Trinity League made its first playoff appearance since 2006, and leading running back DaVonte Young returns next season.

4. (4) Charter Oak (10-2)

The Chargers won the Sierra League and have a dynamic talent in tailback Kurt Scoby for the next two years.

5. (5) Carson (8-6)

The Colts lost in the City Section Division I title game for the second straight year. And, according to reports, they’ll have to replace energetic coach Elijah Asante.

6. (6) San Pedro (12-1)

Winning the Marine League was nice but you can bet the Pirates weren’t too thrilled to see league foes Narbonne and Carson dueling for the Division I crown at East L.A. College.

7. (7) Dorsey (11-2)

The Dons will have bragging rights in the Coliseum League, and coach Paul Knox hopes quarterback Reginald Bell takes the next step.

8. (8) West Covina (13-1)

Coach Mike Maggiore will have to replace tailbacks Chris Solomon and Jimmy Frazier if the run-oriented Bulldogs hope to make it three straight Southeast Division titles.

9. (9) Monrovia (11-3)

The Wildcats claimed their second consecutive Mid-Valley Division championship, but leaving are Ellis McCarthy, Marquise Bias and De’Shawn Ramirez.

10. (10) South East (13-1)

Explosive tailback Robert Lewis finished third in the City Section rushing charts with 2,023 and 30 touchdowns.

Ten more, in alphabetic order: Arcadia (9-3), Bishop Amat (6-5), Covina (11-2), Culver City (10-4), Gardena Serra (8-3), Lakewood (7-4), Loyola (8-3), San Dimas (10-3), San Gabriel (9-5), Santa Monica (11-2).
