The reshuffling of divisions for the fall CIF-SS football season has been kind to local schools in terms of the initial poll. Seven teams from the Garden Grove-Huntington Beach-Westminster area are ranked in the top 10s, and two of them – Edison and Orange – are at the top of their polls.

Here are the results after Week Zero for area teams:

  • Division 2: Edison (1-0) first.
  • Division 7: Huntington Beach (0-1) sixth (Yorba Linda is first)
  • Division 10: Pacifica (1-0) sixth (Valley View is first)
  • Division 11: Westminster (0-0) seventh (Arcadia is first)
  • Division 12: Marina (1-0) third (Santa Ana is first)
  • Division 13: Orange (0-0) first; La Quinta (0-0) seventh.
