Final East Bay Girls Soccer Rankings

Here are the final girls soccer rankings for the 2012-2013 season. Congratulations to San Ramon Valley (Division I) and Bishop O’Dowd (Division II) for their North Coast Section championships.

The Wolves accomplished the unofficial girls soccer triple crown by winning the East Bay Athletic League, Tri-Valley Classic and NCS championships. Impressively athletic and balanced, O’Dowd was a repeat champion, staving off Piedmont in PKs in the final.

Even though Monte Vista and San Ramon Valley met in an all-Danville showcase for the second straight year in the Div. I final, the WACC made its presence felt with a very strong postseason showing. The WACC-Foothill trio of O’Dowd, Berkeley and Castro Valley had a combined 7-1-2 postseason record, and WACC-Shoreline champion Piedmont KO’d No. 2 seed Campolindo in a shootout in the semifinals.

Overall, it was an excellent season and showed off the steady rise in quality of girls soccer throughout the East Bay.
