: : 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.
Corona was #1 in Div.3A at one point. Went 18-1 out of League. Play in a tough League.They get to go to League Champ defending CIF Champ St. Bonaventure 1st round and if win go back up to Santa Barbara 3 days later, but they were worried about the 8 win Barstows excessive travel!?
System is flawed. Needs re-vamping. Enough with the "this team finished in this place so HAS to play this place". Reward the regular season as a whole. Summit went 2-14 and would be 0-10 in Corona's League. Fact..
