The CIF Southern Section released its new playoff division groupings for the 2016 football season Thursday. Below is where area teams were placed.
The CIF-SS also released playoff groupings for girls volleyball, boys water polo and girls tennis.

HERE’S THE FULL STORY: Arguably the most important news of the season came early for local high school football teams on Friday when the CIF Southern Section released its playoff groupings for the upcoming season two months sooner than expected.Originally, teams thought they’d be getting their divisional assignments in August, but given that this is the first year CIF-SS is using a playoff groupings system that uses competitive equity as its only deciding factor, the Southern Section felt it necessary to get the jump on any potential mistakes.“The sooner it’s out there, the more time we have until August to fix anything we don’t know of,” CIF-SS Director of Information Thom Simmons said. “We feel pretty confident that we have with football is going to be the final version. But I can’t say that until August, when, via the bylaws, we stated we will be releasing the final version.”

Cantwell-Sacred Heart of Mary runs into buzzsaw in CIF-SS Division 5 baseball final; loses 11-0 to Woodcrest Christian

cshm loses to woodcrest
By Stephen Ramirez
Cantwell-Sacred Heart of Mary’s quest to win its first CIF Southern Section baseball title will have to wait for another year.

Branden Boissiere gave up one hit and struck out 10 in 5 2/3 innings to lead top seed Woodcrest Christian to an 11-0 victory over the Cardinals in the Division 5 championship game Saturday at UC Riverside.
Wesley Scott had three hits and two RBIs and David Garman had three hits and an RBI for the Royals, who finished 29-5. They scored their fourth title since 2000. Woodcrest Christian outscored its five playoff opponents 33-5.
CSHM, which was held to one hit, finished 28-4. The Cardinals, who were not seeded, were in a divisional final for the first time.
“We had a great season,” CSHM coach Larry Patino said. “We fought and fought and our boys showed up every game. I’d be lying if I said we had a good shot at winning this.
“We showed up, had maybe two good innings. Woodcrest Christian, we should really be talking about them. That team is amazing. They hit the snot out of the ball and Boissiere was dominant.”
Woodcrest Christian started quickly, getting three singles for a 1-0 lead in the first. Pitcher Andrew Quillen looked like he might get out of it, striking out Jordan Keller for the second out. But Garman followed with a ground-ball single to score Boissiere for the lead.
The Royals had four consecutive hits to push it to 4-0 in the fourth.
Garman led off with a single before scoring on a double to right-center field by Gabriel Ramos. Brandon Cody then made it 3-0 with a triple to left-center field before Justin Cross singled with the infield playing in for the four-run lead.
Boissiere took care of the rest. The sophomore, who finished the season 5-1 with an ERA under 1.00, gave up a double to Jared Thomas to start the game before retiring 12 of the next 13, finishing the first three innings with seven strikeouts while using 38 pitches.
He retired 10 consecutive batters before Elijah Vasquez walked with two outs in the fourth. Boissiere then induced Zachary Thomas to fly out.
Woodcrest Christian pushed it to 6-0 in the sixth. Cody and Evan Castillo had singles before Trevor Berl singled with two outs for a 5-0 advantage. Boissiere, who also had two hits and an RBI, followed with a bloop single to make it 6-0.
CSHM, which upset No. 2 seed Paraclete in the quarterfinals and beat Citrus Hill in the semifinals, had one look at the game. The Cardinals loaded the bases in the sixth on three walks, with the first two forcing Boissiere from the mound. But reliever Adam Zellers induced Zach Thomas to pop out to first to end the threat.
The Royals pushed it 11-0 in the seventh. Berl and Castillo had RBIs before Scott had a two-run double. The fifth run came in on a fielding error.
Woodcrest had 16 hits off three CSHM pitchers.
“We’ve talked about how we are a team of destiny,” Patino said. “Down 6-0, we loaded the bases. If it was God’s will, we get a base hit there and something good could have happened.
“We had a great season and our boys laid it on the line this year. But their pitching was amazing. They cut us up. We’ll have to go back to work. Getting here in my third year was a great accomplishment.”

Cantwell-Sacred Heart of Mary-Woodcrest Christian preview: The dream postseason run of the Cantwell-Sacred Heart of Mary High School baseball team seems almost fitting given the drama the Cardinals had to endure this season.What would be even more fitting is if it all resulted in an improbable championship. The Cardinals get their chance on Saturday night at UC Riverside when they play Woodcrest Christian for the CIF Southern Section Division 5 championship. First pitch is scheduled for 7 p.m.“I’ve got my boys totally believing that this was all meant to be,” Cantwell head coach Larry Patino said. “I’ve won many championships in my years, at a way higher level, and I’ve never felt this calm.”CSHM enters Saturday’s game at 29-4 and riding a 14-game winning streak. As sexy as those numbers look, the Cardinals were not one of the division’s top-four seeds. But they’ve certainly played like one of the favorites throughout the postseason.Woodcrest Christian (28-5) is the division’s top seed. The Royals are led by sophomore ace Gabriel Ramos, who has won 10 games this season and has a 0.98 ERA.CSHM will counter with senior Andrew Quillen, who has won two playoff games and has emerged as his team’s ace after not pitching last season due to a elbow injury.

CSHM’s Andrew Quillen takes long road to glory: Andrew Quillen isn’t letting the magnitude of the situation mess with him.In fact, the Cantwell-Sacred Heart of Mary High School senior won’t even think about the stakes of his final prep start until he’s on the mound on Saturday night and ready to throw his first pitch against Woodcrest Christian in the CIF Southern Section Division 5 championship at UC Riverside.“So far, it hasn’t hit me,” Quillen said of getting the ball in his team’s biggest game of the year. “This will be my third start of the playoffs and in the other starts, it didn’t hit me until the first pitch. I just really don’t think about it.”
