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…
Providence’s Jordan Shelley – 2020
Providence is the no. 1 seed and the favorite. Hart could make noise as well, but this division will be competitive.
Village Christian‘s Matt Lee – 2020
This Division is similar to Division 2AA in the sense that it is wide open.
Renaissance Academy’s Koat Keat – 2022
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.
Oakwood’s Aidan Oliver – 2020
Estancia’s Jake Covey – 2020
Lynwood Christian’s Jeremiah Minegar – 2021
