For Granite Hills High School, a 6-3 win over defending San Diego Section champion Santana last Friday, was the impetus that helped move the Eagles from last week's No. 4 spot to second in this week. Santana, however, not only lost to Granite Hills, but was also beaten by Valhalla, to drop from third to fifth in this week's list. Valhalla, meanwhile, moved from seventh to fourth. Meanwhile, Patrick Henry won a pair of games last week to improve its record to 13-1 and hold on to the top spot.

Testifying in Hoffman's preliminary hearing, Daniel Barnes said he dove through a door just as the senior at the El Cajon school fired a blast that shattered the door's window.
