East Bay Girls Volleyball Notes: NorCal’s, Rankings, Standings

The NorCal playoffs begin Tuesday. Let’s wish luck to our local teams.

In Division I, Foothill and San Ramon Valley have tough matchups with Menlo-Atherton and St. Francis-Sacramento, respectively. It’s a deep batch in Division I this year.

In Division II, four-time NCS champ Bishop O’Dowd moves up a division and will have its hands full right away with El Camino, and if the Dragons survive will likely play Presentation. This bracket is extremely tough.

In Division III, Campolindo earned the top seed and will play Foothill-Palo Cedro, before a potential tough matchup with Vista del Lago-Folson or Sacred Heart Cathedral-San Francisco. A possible semifinal showdown with St. Ignatius, which would focus two of the best teams in the state regardless of division, is very enticing.
