Northwest Division Prediction: Gladstone will make a dream run to the semifinals, capping best playoff season since 1977

Don’t sleep on Gladstone. The only game they slipped up on was rival Azusa, that could be forgiven in the grand scheme of things. When you look at the four they’re grouped with, they’ve got a shot at reaching the semifinals, which would be incredible thinking back to where they were last year, but that’s as far as it goes. Bishop Diego is a different animal altogether. I like undefeated La Salle’s chances of marching to the title game, but Bishop Diego is still too good.
