CIF-FOOTBALL PAIRINGS STORY: In the hope of reaching the CIF-Southern Section Mid-Valley Division championship game, Mission Valley League champion Arroyo and Valle Vista League champion San Dimas got its wish, earning the No. 2 and 3 seeds respectively following the release of the CIF-SS Divisional pairings on Sunday.
Both schools did not want to be on the same side of the bracket as three-time defending champion Monrovia, who earned the No. 1 seed. And if seeds hold true to form, Arroyo and San Dimas could meet in a highly anticipated semifinal game, though there is a lot of work to get there.
