: : : : : : : : : : 1. Palisades
: : : : : : : : : : 2. El Camino
: : : : : : : : : : 3. Granada Hills
: : : : : : : : : : 4. Fairfax
: : : : : : : : : : 5. Eagle Rock
: : : : : : : : : : 6. Carson
: : : : : : : : : : 7. Venice
: : : : : : : : : : 8. Westchester Narbonne Legacy Noho Arleta Sylmar Birmingham Garfield

: : : : : : : : :
: : : : : : : : : Legacy is in for sure probably at around 6.

: : : : : : : : : I would flip Granada Hills and Fairfax only because they try to avoid league matchups as long as possible.

: : : : : : : : : Flipping them means league matchups don't happen until finals.

: : : : : : : : El co doesn't deserve to be a 2 seed. Fairfax would be them by 15. Every year el co gets ranked high and never wins, so overrated

: : : : : : :
: : : : : : : You may be right but that's not the way it works.

: : : : : : : Oh, and last year Elco was seeded 4 and made it to the finals by beating Fairfax (5) and Granada Hills (1).

: : : : : : : So I guess it may not be "every year". LOL

: : : : : : That was last year and we both know that Granada hills didn't deserve to be the number 1 and it took a last second shot to beat number 5 fax. Palisades/fax are clearly to two best teams. Let's see if the committee can finally get the seedlings right. 1) Palisades 2) fax 3) Granada 4) el co

: : : : :
: : : : : As I said, you may be right.

: : : : : But you said "every year Elco gets rated too high and never wins". Last year it wasn't the case.

: : : : : Also, last year the seeding was 1. GH, 2. Legacy, 3. Pali, 4. Elco, 5. Fairfax.

: : : : : It should have been 1. Pali, 2. Legacy, 3. Elco, 4. Granada Hills, 5. Fairfax

: : : : : But Legacy over Pali due to head to head win - which will always be first consideration. At that point, GH snuck in because they had better resume than Legacy and won a much better league (got automatic entry over Elco due to better quality win). It's not right, but that's the way it works.

: : : : : It happens in SS too. Did anyone really believe Oaks Christian was a 15 last year????

: : : : :
: : : : : I am convinced City will keep the two sets of league rivals separate, so it will be

: : : : : 1. Pali
: : : : : 2. Elco/GH (whoever is determined as auto entry)
: : : : : 3. Fairfax
: : : : : 4. Elco/GH (whoever is #2 from West Valley)

: : : : :
: : : : : And as an obvious Fairfax supporter, you should want that, as it keeps Pali away from Fairfax until finals.

: : : : Well last year Fairfax beat Granada Hills in a head to head and fairfax still was a 5 seed. To me it seems to be a the double standard when it comes to Fairfax. It don't matter who Fairfax play or beat they still get no respect

: : : I agree with your post about fairfax and I have no dog in the fight. The committee members that pick the seedlings lack common sense. It's very obvious that Pali and fax have more talent and are better than Granada and el co. Let's finally get it right this year.

: :
: : There is basically no difference between 2 and 3.

: : The bad seeds are 4,5, and 8 as you basically have no shot at making the finals.

: :
: : Also, I would argue 1-9 El Camino has more talent (especially since Fairfax only has 6-7 and foul trouble can be a big factor) and Granada Hills has the best coach of the three. Fairfax, however, has the two best scorers of the three teams.

: : I have seen all three of them play multiple times.

: : They each have strengths and weaknesses that would allow them to beat each other on a given day.

: : I would also say, though I think Pali will win it all again, the gap between Pali and the others is much narrower this year.

: As long as Pali has chelsey Gipson they aren't losing. El co has no chance, they do not match up very well against palisades or fairfax. Granada lacks the overall talent but has the best coach in the city. Nobody beating Pali.


I like the Granada coach, but Torino Johnson is the best coach in the City Section and one of top coaches in So Cal.
