: : : : : 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?
I believe CIF goes by strength of schedule and record. There could be more things, but I'm not 100% sure what those other things are.
JSerra - Strength of schedule 16.5,
#14 seed in 2AA
Rowland - Strength of schedule 3.9,
#3 seed in 2AA
Righetti - Strength of schedule 9.8,
#1 seed in 2A
Glendale - Strength of schedule 11.4,
#9 Seed in 2A
Pasadena - Strength of schedule 9.1,
#3 Seed in 4AA
Oxford Academy - Strength of schedule 3.6
#4 seed in 4AA
Viewpoint - Strength of schedule 5.3,
#4 seed in 3A
La Salle - Strenght of schedule 5.2,
#6 seed in 3A
(Not sure why they didn't pull any teams from 3AA or 4A)
Carnegie/Riverside - Strength of schedule -5.6,
#3 seed in division 6
Linfield Christian - Strength of schedule -1.0,
#4 seed in division 6
Westridge - Strength of schedule 1.7,
#7 seed in 5AA
Pilibos - Strength of schedule -1.7,
record 10 - 7
#4 seed in 5AA
(Not sure why they didn't pull teams from 5A)
