Girls Division IV-AA Bracket:
First Round Pairings--(Feb 13, 2000)
This is a pretty small bracket (a 16 team-format) which will actually involve 19 teams (including six at-large entries, all of which will be involved in the three wild-card games below). As a result of the odd number of entrants, the "Wild Card Games" will be played before the first round in this Division, and the wild cards will be on Thursday, February 17:
Wild Card A: St. Paul @ St. Matthias
Wild Card B: Big Bear @ Duarte
Wild Card C: El Segundo @ St. Mary's Academy
Here's the bracketing through the final rounds. As we've said now so many times that we're a bit tired of it, while we can't say that the bracketing is perfect, the committee(which this year consisted of five CIF commissioners--(Ray Plutko, a former CIF Southern Section Commissioner, Dean Crowley, also a former CIF-SS Commissioner, Jim Staunton, current CIF-SS Commissioner, Hal Harkness, the former LA CIF Section Commissioner, and Paul Castillo, the new Assistant Commissioner of Basketball for the Southern Section) did a pretty fair and equitable job in our view. But if you have complaints, talk to them.
