Notes: Although Saddleback isn't ranked among the preseason Top 10, don't count out Coach Mel Silva's Roadrunners in the Golden West League race. . . . Santa Margarita has shown early signs that it will be very tough to beat in the Sea View League, although Woodbridge swept through the league dual meets undefeated last year. . . . The Century League race should be a tight one again, with Santa Ana Valley, El Modena and Orange heading the list. . . . University has a tough one-two punch with Martin Brix and Richard Chou.
