Indian Springs wins first CIF-SS boys volleyball playoff match

Indian Springs
Indian Springs boys volleyball, which won the South Valley League to become the school’s first-ever league champion in any sport, won a playoff match for the first time on Tuesday.
The Coyotes swept Emerson Honors of Orange, 25-15, 25-20, 25-10 on Tuesday in the Division 5 first round. Next up for Indian Springs is a matchup Thursday at top-seeded Damien. Match is scheduled for 7 p.m. This is about the only sport where the two schools could meet in the playoffs. Perhaps Damien will move up a division after this year.

CIF-Southern Section playoffs: are major changes upcoming?

Below is a letter that CIF-SS Commissioner Rob Wigod sent out on Thursday, March 26. Below, I will have my take.

wigod letter 3-26-15

I don’t fault the CIF-SS for exploring this option, because ultimately, the CIF-SS serves its member schools. So if member schools want it, then that’s what they’re supposed to do.
An exact proposal won’t be due until the fall, so several details aren’t available yet, but it sounds like teams could be put into playoff divisions based on their individual results, not league placement. That has already happened to some extent for basketball.
In some ways I like the idea of schools being placed into divisions based on that year’s results (and maybe recent past?), so that teams aren’t able to take advantage of a low division as a result of having poor seasons in recent years.
It’s no secret that schools are placed into leagues based primarily on football. Why were San Bernardino and Pacific shipped out of the San Andreas League and Rim of the World and Jurupa Hills brought in? Football. As a result, some schools are misplaced in leagues in sports other than football.
But I could see issues with exactly how this might work. I will admit most of the plan isn’t known, so that’s a big reason why there are more questions than answers.
But, if you put teams in playoff divisions based on their strength, could you see teams that are not putting full effort into winning games at the end of the season? What if a team, in football say, is the No. 16 team in the top division entering the season’s final week, with a playoff spot already guaranteed? What’s to prevent them from resting starters, perhaps losing that last game and dropping down to the next bracket where they could be the top seed and favorite in a lower division?
It seems possible.
And what about at-large spots? Assuming there would still be at-large spots for the playoffs, would those all go to schools in the top leagues? It seems like Jurupa Hills’ run to the 2012 CIF-SS East Valley Division semifinals from a fourth-place finish in the Mountain Valley League might be a thing of the past.
I’ll remain open-minded to the idea, but there are at least three things I don’t want to see happen: don’t devalue league play, don’t shut out the small schools and don’t make it a clear advantage to lose games late in the season.

CIF-SS Baseball Finals coming to San Manuel Stadium

The CIF-SS Finals are coming to San Manuel Stadium, a stadium used to hosting high school baseball, like the “County Clash,” pictured above.

For years, CIF-SS Finals events were never held in San Bernardino County. But lower division basketball finals were held at Colony High for several years (and now CIF State regional finals), the CIF-SS Masters Wrestling Meet is at Citizens Business Bank Arena now. Now you can add baseball finals to the list.
The CIF-SS announced on Monday that the top four divisions’ CIF-SS Final baseball games will be played at San Manuel Stadium in San Bernardino Stadium on June 6.
“We are excited to showcase the best in high school baseball and provide a memorable championship experience at San Manuel Stadium,” said CIF-SS Commissioner of Athletics Rob Wigod in a press release. “It is a beautiful venue and I know that our student-athletes, coaches and fans will enjoy it very much. I look forward to the outstanding competition that will take place in the four championship games that will be played there and I want to thank the staff at San Manuel Stadium for welcoming us to their home and for their sense of community in giving back to high school baseball.”
The CIF-SS started having baseball finals at a neutral site beginning in 1970 and have been at Dodger Stadium or Angels Stadium every year except for three since 1970. In 1994 and ’96 Finals were held at Blair Field in Long Beach and in 2010, they were held at The Diamond in Lake Elsinore. Each of the last four years the upper-division finals have been at Dodger Stadium.
