: : : : : : State Regional Tournament teams announced. Thoughts?
: : : : : : Division 3
: : : : : : JSerra
: : : : : : Righetti
: : : : : : Division 4
: : : : : : Pasadena
: : : : : : Viewpoint
: : : : : : Division 5
: : : : : : Carnegie/Riverside
: : : : : : Westridge
: : : : : JSerra had an incredible post season run. They knocked off the #4 and #5 seed respectively. (Especially after only winning 4 games last year) Righetti got robbed. You can't have an off night in playoffs and expect to win games! Pasadena is a good team. They have size and some depth. I was sad to see their season end so soon. Thought they would have made it all the way to the finals.
: : : : : I don't know much about the other teams, but congratulations to all who qualified!
: : : : : Coach, is the announcement available somewhere to view?

: : So how does a lower seeded team in playoffs get in over a higher seeded team? Do they just look at who they think will bring in more money?
: Seeds are done by coaches. CIF pays no creedence to the coaches poll. CIF actually sits in a room and weighs in the following factors:
: 1. Strength of League
: 2. Strength of Schedule
: 3. Computer Ranking
: 4. How you are playing at the end of the season
: I am sure you are talking about taking J Serra over Rowland. J Serra plays in the Trinity League. J Serra played a tough schedule and has a win over Open Watch list Orange Lutheran. Not even close. Rowland should have played someone. Not a quality win on their schedule. I applaud CIF for taking the better team, not the one with the gaudy record
I was actually talking about 2 other teams in the area. Los Altos and Walnut
