: : For arguement sake, who do you think makes the open and how many teams will they take? I have heard 8 to 12.

: 16

as noted earlier they are taking 16 so this talk of fewer numbers is not based in fact. All 16 teams selected for the Open Division automatically receive a state playoff spot. I think the 4 semifinalist go to the State Open Division, all other 1st rd winners and consolation semifinalist go to State Division 1 (8 teams) and the 4 teams who go 0-2 in the Open Division are placed in State Division 2.

Now I do agree that it will be much more difficult to select those 16 teams this year because they have not separated themselves as much from the second tier of teams.

The Open Division Watch list includes
Alemany
Antelope Valley
Brea Olinda
Chaminade
Esperanza
Etiwanda
Fairmont Prep
Harvard Westlake
Mark Keppel
ML King
Lakeside
Los Alamitos
Mater Dei
Millikan
North Torrance
Orange Lutheran
Orangewood Academy
Long Beach Poly
Redondo Union
Roosevelt
Rosary
Serra
Sierra Canyon
Troy
Valencia/ Valencia
Ventura
Village Christian
Vista Murrieta
Windward

The Computer says the top 16 of those ON the watch list are
1 Etiwanda
2 Windward (Los Angeles)
3 Harvard-Westlake (Studio City)
4 Sierra Canyon (Chatsworth)
5 Alemany (Mission Hills)
6 Serra (Gardena)
7 Valencia
8 Long Beach Poly (Long Beach)
9 Rosary Academy (Fullerton)
10 King (Riverside)
11 Fairmont Prep (Anaheim)
12 Mater Dei (Santa Ana)
13 North (Torrance)
14 Los Alamitos
15 Brea Olinda (Brea)
16 Esperanza (Anaheim)

Ibkeoni's Top 16 in the Southern Section are
1. Harvard-Westlake
2. Long Beach Poly
3. Etiwanda
4. Sierra Canyon
5. Windward
6. Valencia
7. Alemany
8. Mater Dei
9. Fairmont Prep
10. Gardena Serra
11. Troy
12. Long Beach Millikan
13. Chaminade
14. Ventura
15. Lakeside
16. Antelope Valley

Looking at those two list is appears that strong contenders for the open are (kind of like March Madness - these 10 are almost locks for the Open Division)

Alemany
Etiwanda
Fairmont Prep
Harvard-Westlake
Mater Dei
Long Beach Poly
Gardena Serra
Sierra Canyon
Valencia
Windward

and OPEN contenders on the BUBBLE are (12 teams for 6 spots)

Antelope Valley
Brea Olinda
Chaminade
Esperanza
King
Lakeside
Los Alamitos
Long Beach Millikan
North (Torrance)
Rosary Academy
Troy
Ventura

Those closest to falling off of the Watch list

Mark Keppel
Orange Lutheran
Orangewood Academy
Redondo Union
Roosevelt
Village Christian (sure to fall off after their loss Friday night)
Vista Murrieta
