: Open Division Watch List is cut from 24 to 20
: Dropped from the List
: Vista Murrieta
: Still on the bubble
: Antelope Valley
: A thread down below mentioned 2AA and how JSerra was under .500 and needed a win over OLu to get to .500 and get in the playoffs . . . . Monday night they beat OLu by double digits. Big win for JSerra and what does the loss do for Orange Lutheran and their Open Division prospects?
: As far as anyone knows the .500 rule is still in effect to apply for a playoff spot (according to the playoff bulletin). If you are not in the top half of your league and not .500 your season ends this week.
: Fairfax beats Palisades so the top 4 seeds in the City Open Division will have split with each other in league - should be exciting Open Division final four in the City Section
This is really the year to cut the Open in SS to 12. 16 is really pushing it. And are there even 32 1AA teams at this point? Might help in filling in the brackets.
I think teams like Valencia, Chaminade and Ventura should be on the bubble but they aren't. Chaminade is lowest ranked of those but there losses are all to Open teams and everyone wants their shot at them so they are in for sure.
AV cannot make Open ranked 95. That would be crazy.
Regardless, SS should come down to LBP and Etiwanda barring something weird happening.
City Open should be fun this year. Pali is still the favorite in my eyes, but I think them, Fairfax, El Camino, or Granada Hills can all make a run if they bring their A game.
