: Oak Park??? That's got to be a typo. What is their Coach thinking or am I just a dummy and don't know that they are really good?

Why not have your kid's team take Oak Park's spot if you feel that Oak Park doesn't belong in this tournament. Oh wait, your kid's high school sucks worse than Oak Park, nevermind. Maybe Oak Park coach wants to challenge their team in this tournament. Get them battle tested and play some of the best teams in Southern California. What's wrong with that? Don't most of you spineless, armchair coaches rant about how most teams duck competition and how teams should play a tougher schedule? But when a team steps up to do that you knock them down because in your eyes they can't compete with the "elite" or are on the same level as teams in their area. Oak Park went 26-11 last season and lost in the finals of Division 4AA. Last season, Oak Park didn't play anybody worth mentioning nor did they beat anybody worth mentioning. Maybe that's why they are in this tournament to change that to improve their strength of schedule and play some better competition. So what if Oak Park gets blown out in every game. Looking at the list of teams I think Oak Park belongs in this tournament. Alemany will be rebuilding. Both El Camino Real and Granada Hills will be way down from last season, maybe they shouldn't compete in this tournament either. Saugus and Valencia are mid-pack teams that can't compete or even come close to Sierra Canyon. Serra will be rebuilding now that Tucker is gone so Serra will be interesting to see how they will be. But, Serra is already in good shape with the freshmen they had last season. See the more you break things down it looks like Oak Park belongs in this tournament with these other "name" or "elite" programs. Don't judge a book by it's cover, dummy.
