From LA Times
I am not sure why Newbury Park made the list and I also wonder why there are so many Div IV teams on the list.
Rk. Team (2009 rec., Sec.-Div.) Comment
1 EDISON (23-6, SS-Div. I) Lake Elsinore's Storm Stadium will become Edison Field on June 5.
2 CRESPI (21-11, SS-Div. II) On a scale of 1-10, ace Ryon Healy was 11-0 last season.
3 JSERRA (22-7, SS-Div. I) Catcher Austin Hedges is such a threat to opponents, "Danger" should be his middle name.
4 BISHOP AMAT (26-6, SS-Div. IV) Lancers loaded with so many college-bound players that theme for season could be "Committed."
5 CAPISTRANO VALLEY (26-6, SS-Div. I) Having won three CIF titles at Angel Stadium and three at Dodger Stadium, Cougars to try Petco Park.
6 ORANGE LUTHERAN (18-11, SS-Div. I) Lancers return 10 starters and bad taste from playoff loss to Capistrano Valley.
7 MATER DEI (24-6, SS-Div. I) Homer-happy Cory Hahn is back to lead Monarchs in quest to go deep in playoffs.

9 WEST RANCH (21-8, SS-Div. I) If outfielder Allen Sarkissian goes to Washington, football coach may try to say they're related.
10 CHATSWORTH (30-4, City-Div. I) Only thrill Chancellors haven't had at Dodger Stadium is Vin Scully calling their game (hint, hint).
11 ROYAL (19-7, SS-Div. I) Pitcher Cody Buckel schedules workout for pro scouts following "American Idol" audition.
12 YUCAIPA (27-3, SS-Div. II) Thunderbirds hope to save some runs -- and victories -- for the playoffs.

14 ST. JOHN BOSCO (14-11, SS-Div. I) When you think "shortstops" and "St. John Bosco," naturally you think Dante Flores.
15 CYPRESS (19-10, SS-Div. II) Eight returning starters should be enough for Centurions to make extended postseason run.
16 QUARTZ HILL (19-9, SS-Div. III) Pitcher Jack Sheeley is so unflappable that he could be described as a Rebel and a bulldog.
