Mater Dei Monarchs

There no doubt that year-in and year-out, Southern California’s Trinity League is one of best leagues in America.  Friday night marks the start of a grueling five week gauntlet for the league title.

Mater Dei is the only Trinity League team that came through the 2016 non-league portion of its schedule unscathed.  The 5-0 Monarchs, averaging over 55 points per game, open league play against Santa Margarita Friday night
