: : : : : : Again just my opinion. Taking any thoughts on this one
: : : : : : 1. Lakeside
: : : : : : 2. Foothill Tech
: : : : : : 3. Cantwell Sacred Heart
: : : : : : 4. Arcadia
: : : : : : 5. Sunny Hills
: : : : : : 6. Saugus
: : : : : : 7. Oxford Academy
: : : : : : 8. PV
: : : : : : 9. Lancaster
: : : : : : 10. Flintridge Prep
: : : : : : 11. El Rancho
: : : : : : 12. St Marys
: : : : : : 13. Newbury Park
: : : : : : 14. Chino Hills
: : : : : : 15. Cabrillo
: : : : : : 16. El Dorado
: : : : : : Lakeside is an open team. Period. The rest are once again very balanced. Im not sure this division isn't as tough or tougher than 2AA. Foothill Tech was in the CIF Finals last year and returns everyone, Sunny Hills was in the State Final last year, Cantwell is very good, Arcadia when they get their best player back will be really good, Newbury Park and Flintridge Prep will argue they have the best player in the Division, Lancaster is super athletic and will look to rebound, PV is very good, Cabrillo is unbeatable on the road. This is a well balanced division. If Lakeside goes I will take Foothill Tech or Flintridge Prep.
: : : : : Did Lakeside get some transfer we don't know about in the IE? Open team? Tell us more as to how that is seen?
: : : : Lakeside got a ton of transfers. They got to the finals of the very prestigious Palm Springs July tourney beating major players. They are the real deal
: : : Pump your brakes calling the Palm Springs tournament prestigious. Half of the teams there either didn't have their full roster of players or their club players just started playing with their high school teams. It is a nice tournament but to call it prestigious is a bit much. Let's see what Lakeside can do during the regular season before anointing them an Open team.
: : Don't typically agree with POS, but in this case I do. You can not judge any team's performance by the Palm Springs tourney in July. It was 2 days after Chicago Nike Nationals, any decent player was off playing with their club team in Chicago. So they either did not compete with their teams in Palm Sprngs or if they did play, it was not 100%, the road to Nationals is exhausting for any player. Palm Springs organizer should have better planning.
: Why should she have better planning. She puts on a summer tournament and anybody can come if they want. A lot of teams do come and they all have a good time. That's the bottom line.
Because a lot of these high schools pretty much require the entire team participate. And for the girls that just came off of a week and a half (Indy and Chicago) of tough competition, their bodies are exhausted and need a break, they are risking injury. I think it is bad planning to have a tourney literally 2 days after the biggest and most competitive tourneys around. If these high school coaches (and parents) would be ok with them missing, may be a different story.
