Girls Division IV-A Bracket:
First Round Pairings--(Feb 13, 2000)

This is another of those smallish brackets, a 16 team bracket with two wild card games, involving two fourth place teams who received automatic bids (St. Joseph Santa Maria from the Los Padres and Holy Family from the Horizon League), and two at-large entries, Maranatha and Brentwood.  There will be no first round byes, but the two wild cards will be played before the first round. 

The wild card games will be played on Thursday, February 17, 2000, as follows:

Wild Card "A":   Brentwood @ Marantha
Wild Card "B":  Holy Family @ St. Joseph Santa Maria

As far as the rest of the bracketing is concerned, the First Round will take place on February 19, while the Quarterfinals will be on the 23rd, the semis on the 26th and the finals on the 3rd or 4th (TBA) at the Pyramid.

And like the rest of the brackets, 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.
