Northern California Playoffs

CIF San Francisco Section
Girls Championships
(Final Update 3/7/04)

3/7/04 Update:  Congratulations to the Lincoln Mustangs, the 2003-04 San Francisco CIF Academic Athletic Association Champions, who won their first Section Championship since 1922.  And congratulations to the runner-up,  Wallenberg.


The San Francisco Section is tiny by Southern California standards.  It consists of just 10 teams divided into two "Divisions,"  the Lang and Neff Divisions.   The term "divisions" is a bit deceiving because we would call them "leagues" since technically, they have nothing to do with CBED enrollment playoff "divisions" as that term is used in the rest of the State CIF.  The Section Champion and Runner-up will both advance to the State Northern Regional Tournament, receiving automatic bids into the appropriate enrollment-based division for each such school (e.g., I, II, III, IV or V).   We've listed the schools in each league, as well as which enrollment-division they will play in if they are lucky enough to advance to the State Northern Regional Tournament.
