Isn’t this how it’s supposed to end up in Division IV, with Bishop Amat and Northview meeting in the biggest and most anticipated game in San Gabriel Valley history? Am I getting carried away by asking that? Anyway, as long as they stay on top of the polls, they will meet in the title game. Oh wait, San Dimas is No. 3, leads the VVL, and is certainly good enough to spoil it all. I’m not hating Saints, you can beat either team and they know it. Bonita (3), South Hills (4) and Charter Oak (8) are in the mix in Division III and Gladstone joins the party in Division V, checking in at No. 7. Someone will have to explain the Division II rankings, Chino (No. 6) is the only Sierra team listed, but Arcadia (whom Glendora promptly beat in their own tournament) is No. 7. It must be that tough Pacific League, right? Those games against Muir, Pasadena, Burbank and Burroughs are so darn tough (extreme sarcasm). It’s unfair that the Sierra is getting punished for being tough from top to bottom.
Shouldn’t Glendora be ranked in Division II?
