Notes:

*Mater Dei forfeited its win against Bishop Amat for using an ineligible player.

**Mission Viejo forfeited its first four victories for self-reporting using an ineligible player. However, because the player didn’t affect the on-field outcomes, the four games are still calculated as victories in our algorithm.
