TOP STORYLINE FOR DIVISION 2A

Ribet Academy is the clear favorite. They’ve returned everyone from their state championship team last season. The biggest question/storyline is will they face a major challenge in their CIF title defense? Sonora may give them trouble…

Division 3AA

TOP PLAYER

Providence’s Jordan Shelley – 2020

TOP STORYLINE

Providence is the no. 1 seed and the favorite. Hart could make noise as well, but this division will be competitive.

Division 3A

TOP PLAYER

Village Christians Matt Lee – 2020

TOP STORYLINE

This Division is similar to Division 2AA in the sense that it is wide open.

Division 4AA

TOP PLAYER

Renaissance Academy’s Koat Keat – 2022

TOP STORYLINE

Renaissance is the biggest favorite of any top seed in any Southern Section Division. If they were to be upset, it would be a shocker.
