: How on earth were Summit and Barstow matched up first round in 3A? Who does these seedings? Seems like every division there are a lot of question marks. Can we stop rewarding doing well in bad conferences??Third in the trinity or baseline is better than winning a lot of other leagues.
Here's what happened. Coaches who are confused about seeding rules voted Corona #9, however Corona finished behind Norco in league. Norco wasn't ranked in the polls. CIF rules forbid a team to be seeded ahead of anyone they finished behind in the same league (even if both are at-large). So, Corona had to be replaced. CIF chose Summit to curtail excessive travel for Barstow.
Ironically, it now seems that Summit gets a better draw/higher seed than Kaiser, despite finishing behind Kaiser in league. CIF should've put Santa Fe in Corona's spot instead of Summit.
