: At this point, of the 65 teams in Division 4AA, I think there are 22 who are virtually eliminated. I will attempt to rank the other 43 teams here. These are teams that still have a chance to qualify for the playoffs. Obviously, many of these teams will end up not making the playoffs. It will be interesting to see how many automatic qualifiers there are and if there will be room for any wild cards (and if so, how many). Here is how I would rank the 43 in Division 4AA (records are as of 1/26).

: 1. Paloma Valley (20-3)
: 2. La Salle (18-5)
: 3. Westlake (16-7)
: 4. Xavier Prep (21-2)
: 5. Ontario Christian (20-2)
: 6. Orange Vista (15-7)
: 7. Santa Clara (12-8)
: 8. Holy Martyrs (15-3)
: 9. Inglewood (12-12)
: 10. Pasadena Poly (13-4)
: 11. Montclair (15-3)
: 12. Buena Park (14-9)
: 13. Moreno Valley (17-6)
: 14. Portola (14-7)
: 15. Bassett (16-4)
: 16. Notre Dame/Riverside (14-8)
: 17. Pilibos (17-6)
: 18. Coachella Valley (11-6)
: 19. Santiago/G.G. (12-10)
: 20. San Marcos (14-8)
: 21. Citrus Valley (10-7)
: 22. Schurr (8-8)
: 23. Calabasas (13-9)
: 24. Arroyo (11-12)
: 25. Bloomington Christian (10-2)
: 26. Barstow (11-8)
: 27. Serrano (12-8)
: 28. Rancho Alamitos (13-8)
: 29. Rancho Mirage (10-14)
: 30. Garey (13-7)
: 31. St. Pius X-St. Matthias (14-10)
: 32. Whitney (9-13)
: 33. Heritage Christian (6-12)
: 34. Godinez (13-10)
: 35. Heritage (12-10)
: 36. Highland (13-10)
: 37. Big Bear (13-7)
: 38. Duarte (11-5)
: 39. Jurupa Valley (9-12)
: 40. Norwalk (9-12)
: 41. Newport Harbor (11-12)
: 42. La Quinta/Westm. (11-11)
: 43. Marymount (9-14)

: Of the teams I have in the top 20, Inglewood and San Marcos will not qualify, unless as an at large. Buena Park and Notre Dame/Riverside are in danger of not qualifying from their leagues. Calabasas, Heritage Christian, Heritage, Newport Harbor and Norwalk are also in danger of not qualifying, among others from this list of 43. Inglewood deserves the first possible at large, based on their difficult schedule/league and their results. Buena Park as well, should they not qualify. Over the next week, I will take a closer look at these teams to evaluate their league standing and their possibilities for qualifying for playoffs.

: Interesting recent results from the division: Pilibos defeated Holy Martyrs 39-38 to split their two games this year. Paloma Valley defeated Orange Vista 59-32 after winning by seven in their first meeting. Bassett was upset by La Puente on 1/17, which makes it a three way race between Garey, Bassett and La Puente (Division 5AA) for second and third in the Montview League.

: The Sunbelt League has an interesting 4-team battle for the last two playoff spots (3rd and 4th in an 8-team league) between Orange Vista, Notre Dame/Riverside, Heritage and Elsinore (Division 4A). Should Elsinore qualify, two of the three 4AA teams would be left out.

: Key games this week involving 4AA teams: Elsinore at Notre Dame (1/27), La Quinta/L.Q. at Xavier Prep and La Salle at St. Mary’s Academy (1/28), Riverside Poly at Paloma Valley and Santiago/G.G. at Rancho Alamitos (1/29), Oaks Christian at Westlake, Bassett at Garey and Don Lugo at Montclair (1/31). On Saturday at the Glendora Shootout, Xavier Prep plays Brentwood, Moreno Valley plays Westlake, Ontario Christian plays Chino and La Salle plays Ayala (2/1).

There should be definitely wild card games in division 4AA like is was last year in division 5. It tough to get into playoff when you have a league with 4 teams in the same division and their league is not that strong at all. Cifss really need to look at this leagues and determine if these team really deserve be in the playoff. If they win their league, I agreed that they be in playoff but 3rd place in league that not that strong at all. I wish they would take a look at that. When you got a team that haven't been rank all year get the opportunity to play playoff. Where team that rank may not make the playoff that not right.
