CIF-SS Boys Division V-A Bracket:
Quarterfinals Tonight--(Feb. 28, 2003)
We're down to the quarterfinals in what has been Price's bracket to lose for the last four years, and it looks like they are well on their way to the finals again. Tonight the Knights will play West Valley Christian at Malibu HS. In the other QF in the upper half of the bracket, Mesrobian plays at Renaissance, while in the lower half of the bracket, Maricopa will visit Tarbut v' Torah on Saturday night (the date has been switched for religious reasons), and the other game will feature Desert Chapel hosting Rio Hondo Prep. Should be interesting to see who finally survives to try to give Price a run for it before the State Tournament. Here's the updated bracket, followed by the game results we were able to collect:
