2008 as the 13th seed, the Scots drew No. 4 Mitty.

Suffice to say, there hasn’t been a lot of CCS playoff success for
the Scots since winning back-to-back titles in 1992 and 1993. They
have not won a CCS game since a first-round game in 1995.
Even Serra, which won the 2009 title, had a down year. The
Padres are only the No. 11 seed in Division I and will play their
first, first-round playoff game since 1999 — when neutral sites
were used for first-round games. Serra hasn’t lost a first-round
game since 2005’s shocking 3-1 loss to 15th-seeded Santa Clara.
El Camino has had a dry spell similar to Carlmont’s. The Colts,
who are making their second appearance in two years following a
two-year drought, have not won a CCS game since a 1996 win
over Soquel, two years after losing to Serra in the 1994 champi-
onship game.
The best bet to make any noise this postseason has to be defend-
ing Division III champion Menlo School, which is the No. 3 seed.
Despite playing in the relatively weak WBAL, the Knights beefed
up their resume with a number of quality non-league opponents,
many who play in Division I and II.
Surprisingly, in addition to champ Half Moon Bay, the PAL’s
Ocean Division got a second team into the tournament, with
Capuchino earning a No. 15 seed in Division III.
County softball teams got a little better treatment as four of the
eight teams that qualified earn home games.
The biggest surprise was Terra Nova earning the No. 8 seed in
Division III and getting to host a first-round game. The Tigers fin-
ished in fourth place in the PAL’s Bay Division, but ended the reg-
ular season on a three-game losing streak. CCS usually takes the
Bay Division’s fourth-place team as an at-large, but given the
Tigers’ losing league record and just a .500 mark overall, it was a
bit dicey.
Another surprise — this one a little bit eyebrow raising — was
Ocean Division champion San Mateo having to go on the road for
a first-round game. Usually the Ocean Division champion gets a
home game by virtue of being a division champion, but the No. 11
Bearcats will face No. 6 Aptos, which also qualified as a league
champ, thus earning the home game.
Capuchino, which finished in third in the PAL, got the highest
seed of all county teams. The Mustangs were given the No. 2 seed
in Division III — and the first-round bye that comes with it.
Hillsdale has coaching openings in its football program. The
school is looking for a varsity defensive coordinator and other var-
sity assistants. The freshman team needs an entire staff — fresh-
man football coach and assistants. For more information, contact
varsity head coach Mike Parodi at mparodi@smuhsd.org.
The San Bruno Parks and Recreation District is offering the
22nd annual Coach Rapp’s Summer Slam Basketball League for
boys and girls from fourth grade through seniors in high school.
