San Diego Nike National Prep Classic:
"American" Division Bracket & Schedule--(Dec. 25, 1998)

There are six brackets for the San Diego Nike National Prep Classic.  If you're trying to follow the progress of just a single team (e.g., you are a player, parent or just a fan of one team in particular) then you must know which bracket your team is in, because there are six brackets (5 for boys' teams and one for girls, not to mention some JC college games which are unbracketed).  Because the various brackets don't compete against one another, you'll need to separate the brackets discretely in order to determine your team's progress (or lack thereof). 

So we've tried to take the work out of it for you all and provided not only the brackets graphically, but also a schedule for each of the brackets.

There are two "best" divisions, the "National" Division and the "American" Divisions.  This is the American Division bracket and schedule  There are also brackets for the Governor's Cup "Pearl", "Diamond", and the Mayor's Cup "Ruby" and "Emerald" Divisions.  Remember, the tournament runs from Saturday December 26, through Wednesday (New Year's Eve), December 31, 1998, and the games will be held at 5 different locations, with the brackets playing games all over the place.  

The teams participating in this bracket are:

LA Fairfax,  The Bishop's School La Jolla, Ocean View, Charlotte Christian, Oceanside, Eisenhower, Roosevelt (Washington), LA Fremont, La Costa Canyon, J.W. North, Capistrano Valley, Bishop O'Dowd, St. Augustine (San Diego), Oakland Fremont, Juanita (Washington) and Inglewood.

Here's the American Division Bracket, and the American Division Schedule.  Please Note: We've already posted up a Composite Schedule for all the Saturday Games.  This one is just for the "American" Division.  We'll be posting the others up separately as well.

Here's the American Division Schedule of Games:

We really had trouble figuring out the bracketing for this tournament, but hopefully doing it with the games in numerical order will help you follow the bracketing results.  If not, don't blame us, we didn't devise this crazy schedule.
