If you can read the above bylaws, it outlines how you break a tie in baseball and softball in the Citrus Belt League. In softball,. there will be either a two- or three-way tie for the fourth and final CIF-SS playoff spot, but either way, Redlands wins the tiebreaker.
Only one game remains, and that’s going on now, Citrus Valley vs. REV. As it is right now, Redlands and Cajon each have 7-7 league records tied for fourth, with Citrus Valley at 6-7. A Citrus Valley win over second place REV would make it a 3-way tie for fourth.
Since each of the 3 teams went 1-1 against each other, the next tie breaker is runs allowed vs. the other two teams. Here’s how it breaks down:
Redlands vs. Cajon 6 runs allowed, Redlands vs. Citrus Valley 5 runs allowed. Total: 11 runs allowed
Citrus Valley vs. Redlands 8 runs allowed, Citrus Valley vs. Cajon, 11 runs allowed. Total: 19 runs allowed
Cajon vs. Citrus Valley: 13 runs allowed, Cajon vs. Redlands 11 runs allowed. Total: 24 runs allowed.
So, whether it is a two-way tie or a 3-way tie, Redlands gets the last automatic berth.
High school athletes from the CIF Southern Section will jump into the pool throughout the week at Riverside City College for the 2016 swim finals.
On the Division 2 girls side, Ayala’s Kenisha Liu and Redlands’ Melissa Pepper return with the hope of capping off their high school careers on top.
Defensive back Michael Boafo of Redlands High School is resting at home, according to position coach Will Pomfret.

Alisha Edwards of Redlands High School verbally committed to UCLA track and field program following her official visit over the weekend.
“UCLA not only has a stellar academic program but the team is equally amazing,” Edwards said. “The members of the track team made me feel so welcomed and they are just a genuine group of people. The coaching staff is great and I felt a great vibe as soon as I arrived (on campus).”
Despite competing in other events as a member of the RHS Terriers’ track & field program, she plans to only compete as a high jumper.
But before she can wear the blue and gold, she will represent the Terriers for her senior season.
“My goal (for my senior) season is to progress mentally and physically as an athlete,” she said. “I am definitely looking to reach my personal record in the high jump and repeat at CIF. My number one goal is state.”
With a personal record of 5 foot 8 inches, Edwards is no stranger to CIF and the competitive journey that comes with reaching the event. She was a member of the back-to-back CIF Southern Section Division 2 championship teams.
While she finished second at CIF-SS in 2015, she earned an individual high jump title in 2014.
