I think Flosoftball.com also had Cal Breeze, Suncats and CC Dirt Dogs as contenders unless we're only talking about So Cal teams. Batbuster's Campbell and Panther's Gold were also on that list. There were a couple of more Cali teams on Flo's list too.

It's only winter but it's fun to speculate!

Campbell's team that was ranked before is 16u now. He is coaching a 14u first year team, I believe it's Mascarenas' squad from last season as she took on a other 12u team.

The Panthers Gold team is probably also the 03 squad.

The rankings were in a post from another thread and was only So Cal teams, I don't pay much attention to no cal teams. The Pickering team is good, the West Bay Warriors were too but I think the WBW were 03s

Thank you Schmick. I assumed that since Flo's list came out this month it was just strictly 14u teams eligible for the 2019 season.

Flosoftball did rank Campbell's 2023 team number #23. in the country. You're right, it is Mascarenas' old team.

The Panther's Gold team on their list is also a 14u team. It's made up primarily of the same girls with the exception of a few that had to move up 16's.

Flosoftball's list came out in Oct so it should be pretty accurate at least with the ages groups and I can't vouch for the rankings. :)

I posted who I felt were the top 10 based on what I have witnessed the last 14 months or so watching games every weekend. The list was in a thread about dwindling discussion on heybucket where someone said that there used to be ranking by someone in So Cal and it brought traffic to the board. I threw 10 teams up off the top of my head

I didn't include dirt dog Pickering as they're not in So Cal

I don't pay for flow softball so I don't know how they have teams ranked.

Saw Panthers Gold at a showcase last fall, they looked older and a parent said they were 03s. Could have been a mixed team though.

No biggie, my older daughter has the Flo subscription. I was shocked at how many 05
teams they had on their list. But from what I heard(not seen) they're pretty good.

There was a Sun Cats team from No Cal that was pretty good a couple years ago, not sure they're still around.
I believe the So Cal Sun Cats were an Ohana team or something last year and are sort of starting new with an organization not from the area. Kind of like the So Cal Diamond Sports Elite, the So Cal EC Bullets or the So Cal Marucci Patriots (that I believe are called Strike Force or something now)

Of the teams I have listed in my no particular order top 10

Batbuster Flores
FC Venegas
So Cal As Limo
Mercado As Hovermale

All are in the Surf City PGF Las Vegas Showcase this weekend

SCA Limo and Mercado-Hovermale are both 2-0 on day 1
Batbusters Flores and FC Venegas are both 1-1
BB Flores loss is to SCA Limo
FC Venegas loss is to Mercado-Hovermale.

Be interesting to see how the rest of this showcase plays out. There's 54 teams in the showcase from So Cal, No Cal, Nevada, Utah, Arizona....
