Despite being named as the fourth seed in the NCS Division 3 girls basketball playoffs, the Campolindo girls basketball team was removed from the playoffs Monday when officials realized that the Campolindo team did not actually meet playoff eligibility requirements.

One of the requirements states that for a team to be eligible for the playoffs, they must have more wins than losses in one of three categories: overall record, division record, or league record. The Cougars were 11-14 overall and 6-6 in their division and their league, making them ineligible.

The removal of the Cougars from the playoffs bumped all other teams up one seed, including the Acalanes girls who are the new number four seed and will now host a quarterfinal game.
