Comments: This division should be re-named the Tri-Valley Division. The top three teams come from that league and maybe even the top five. Bishop Diego, from this view, looks to be the favorite, and although the Cardinals are an at-large team this year, they are capable of making a run for the title. La Salle has the best shot of the locals, which also includes Duarte and Maranatha, who meet in the first round, but I can’t see the Lancers getting past the second round.

    No locals here.
    The boys from Hasting’s ranch have had 2 good years and they should be proud.
    Maranatha is well Maranatha…all I can say is …”Salieri!”

      Oops! Sorry, I guess that’s why I’m human. I corrected it.

      All I ask is that you address me as Steve. I try to give my followers the same courtesy. Thanks again, and sorry for the oversight.
