Sunday Tribbin: More Bracketology from the Guru, who looks at the Southeast and Mid-Valley

Anything and anyone you want to talk about

Guru Says: Folks, I’ve been doing this stuff for six years and I can’t remember a year that is as much of a mess as this division as we go into week 10. To read his breakdown, click thread

Game of the week? there are three to choose from, you decide. Notre Dame at Bishop Amat, South Hills at Rowland, or San Dimas at Baldwin Park?

Who’s No. 1: The question has to be answered now that Bishop Amat lost. Has Charter Oak been good enough lately to reclaim their top spot? Or is the Lancers’ body of work just too strong?

Athletes of the week: Looking for nominations for boys and girls athletes of the week.

Southeast Division

This is what happened in the Top-10 Friday night
1. Charter Oak (Did Not Play)
2. South Hills (defeated Walnut)
3. Burbank (lost to Pasadena)
4. Crescenta Valley (lost to Burroughs)
5. Walnut (lost to South Hills)
6. Rowland (defeated Nogales)
7. Bell Gardens (lost to Alhambra)
8. Schurr (defeated San Gabriel)
9 Santa Fe (lost to California)
10. Burroughs/Burbank (defeated Crescenta Valley)

In case you are keeping track – that’s five top-10 teams that lost last night. So the last poll, which is the one that the seeding committee will
use as a base of putting the brackets together, will be very interesting. This is what it might look like when it is released on Monday

1. Charter Oak
2 South Hills
3. Rowland
4 Schurr
5. Burroughs/Burbank
6. Burbank

I only go to six because the rest becomes meaningless. If you anticipate South Hills defeating Rowland (and Calpreps.com is projecting that to
happen) then this might be the seeding for the division

1. Charter Oak
2. South Hills
3. Schurr
4. Winner of the Burroughs vs. Burbank game

If that is the case, here is what the brackets might look like (remember, its not the traditional 1 vs 16, 2 vs 15…to see the formula the committee uses
download the playoff handbook at cifss.org)

Upper Bracket

(1) Charter Oak (Miramonte 1)
Winner of Muir/Pasadena game (Pacific 3)

San Gabriel (Almont 2)
West Covina (San Antonio 2)

Santa Fe (Del Rio 2)
Rowland (San Antonio 3)

(4) winner of burroughs vs. Burbank (Pacific 1)
Alhambra (Almont 3)

Lower Bracket

(3) Schurr (Almont 1)
Bonita (Miramonte 3)

California (Del Rio 2)
Crescenta Valley (Pacific 3)

Loser of Burroughs/Burbank (Pacific 2)
Diamond Ranch (Miramonte 2)

South Hills (San Antonio 1)
El Rancho (Del Rio 3)

This is a complete guess. We will update the bracket as soon as we get the poll on Monday…

Mid-Valley Division

Unlike the Southeast Division, things are a lot more calmer in this division. Rosemead won last night and has secured second place in the
league and South El Monte won last night and needs to win Friday to secure third place in the league.

Covina secured third place in the VVL win their win over Pomona last night. Workman has secured fourth place in the Montview with their
win over Sierra Vista last night. So here is what we are looking at going into week 10….

4) Paraclete

Upper Bracket

(1) Monrovia (Rio Hondo 1)
South El Monte (Mission Valley 3)

(4) Paraclete (olympic 1)
Gladstone (Montview 3)

Lower Bracket
