: : : : : : Looking at last weeks polls I noticed we dropped. We were ranked 10 and we beat Alemany and lost a close one by 3 pts to Harvard Westlake earlier in the season. How did we drop behind Troy and how is Mater Dei ranked ahead of Valencia. Didn't they just lose to fairmont prep who lost to keppel. Interested to see this weeks polls. Looking at schedules as I said Valencia beat Alemany and the polls new number 10 Troy lost to them by double digits. Looking at troy I don't see a quality win unless counting Redondo but I don't think Redondo is an open team. The open division will be interesting as to who is in and where they are ranked. Valencia should be higher than they are. Brea should be higher also. They conveniently did not have either their number 1 or number 2 player playing in their loses to Sonora and orangewood academy. Good Luck to all in the playoffs where every you land.

: : : : : The polls are crazy as are MaxPreps rankings.
: : : : : Truth is Valencia is an Open team, but if they are lucky they will stay in 1AA like Ventura did last year. They have a legit shot to win 1AA, but will probably not win first Open game, win second one, and then be in D1 for State.
: : : : :1AA is where Valencia should want to be. Konrad is the best player in Santa Clarita and with the rest of seniors they will have a favorable shot of finally winning CIF. Good luck to the girls!
: : : Earlier in the season? You are making it sound like it was a week or two ago. The win over Alemany was at the beginning of the season. The same goes for the Harvard-Westlake loss. Those games carry weight but not like a win or a loss does now with the season coming to a close. Since those games, who has Valencia beaten?? Palisades and Canyon...oh wow talk about great teams. One is a City team so that doesn't count and the other is a team that you almost lost to. A team that had no business almost beating Valencia for the second time. But here you are crying because the Division 1AA coaches are seeing Valencia for what they really are. Just an average team with no depth and a low and I mean low Division 1 signee. As for your win over Alemany that was before their SOP sit outs became eligible so Alemany is a different team now and Valencia would probably lose that game now.
: : : What you conveniently left out is that Valencia lost to Gardena Serra a team that is ranked 7th in the polls. What about that game? You followed that loss with another even worse loss to Mission Hills. Oh and by the way, your loss to Harvard-Westlake was by 7 and not 3 but SEVEN!!
: : : Yes, Fairmont Prep lost to Keppel at least they played someone that challenged them and not Palisades. Since that loss Fairmont Prep beat Mater Dei and Orangewood. Two teams that Valencia would definitely lose to.
: : : Mater Dei is ranked high because of their body of work and the Division 1AA coaches won't drop Mater Dei because of one loss to a better Open Division team. As for your gripe against Troy the reason they are ranked ahead of Valencia is because of their strength of schedule and oh because they have 2 Division 1 players and one of those players is going to Cal and is a McDonald's All American. Troy's losses to Alemany was by 9 not double digits. Gosh do you even know how to count??? You are just full of lies and half-truths.
: : : As for your Brea Olinda observation, Sink was tanking those games on purpose to try and get out of the Open Division. Every coach in Division 1AA know that. Because the next games both players were healthy and fine. Sink knows what he is doing and is 100 times better than Jim Bob Mike or whatever your coach's name is.
: : : Just face it Valencia will be lucky if they are in the Open Division because honestly besides the Alemany win they have done nothing and beaten nobody. Even if Valencia is dropped to Division 1AA they will choke like they did last season. They beat a West Torrance team by 30 points at Palisades only to choke and lose to them in the playoffs. Talk about pathetic. The clock is ticking on Valencia...its almost time for Valencia to disappear back to being a nobody like before.
: : POS, you sound very bitter and a little scary considering these are high school girls/teams we are posting about. Your posts are exactly why these boards get a bad rap! Fine to have an opinion but there is something called RESPECT, try it sometime.
: :Let me see if I can crack this f**l's IP address.
So let me get this straight. I voice my opinion and since it wasn't all rainbows and unicorns I am a bad guy? Fine by me. Maybe hearing the unfiltered truth is better than telling everyone that they are great even when they are not. But what I find so funny is the same Valencia parents were on here badmouthing their head coach after Valencia lost down in San Diego to better teams and competition. The kind of competition that is supposed to expose your weaknesses and things that need improving. On top of that these are the same Valencia parents that badmouth and trash other teams in their area because they are threatened by these teams because these other teams have less talent or skill than Valencia so these Valencia parents try everything to bring these teams down to make Valencia and their kids look superior when in fact that is not the truth. I am going to continue to voice my opinion and views when I see necessary to do so. I will give everyone here a bit of advice, grow some thicker skin. These are words and nothing more. Another thing, if you want to shut me up then come back at me with some truth and some facts as well. I always leave myself open for someone to tear what I have said apart. But no one wants to do that.
