    Perhaps you overlooked the enrollment size of St. Joseph of Santa Maria. It’s only 474.
    Based on the Knights’ impressive 47-7 win over Santa Barbara Friday night, an SS D3 title is not out of the question. Palma of Salinas, the perennial MBL-Gabilan champs, come to town Sept. 20. That game should say a lot.
    If St. Joseph were to win SS D3, I doubt if the commissioners would pick them over the SS D4, SS D6, or even SS D7 winners for the CIF D2 South Regionals, though. However, a shoe-in for D4.
    Anyway, I think it’s fair to say St. Joseph should be inthe CIF D4 South top 3 at this point.

      I also think St. Joe should be in the top 3 in Div IV South given their enrollment. If (big if) St. Joe won the Northern Div the Commissioners would probably place them in Div IV because most likely they would face Central Catholic. And the Commissioners don’t want a lopsided State Championship like last year (Santa Fe Christian).

    Afraid I made a mistake.
    I looked up CIF ‘ s current rule for CIF D4 teams. To be eligible, the team must win its section/division, but that division needs to be a CIF D3 division. Although St. Joseph is only 474 students, its section division, the Northern(SS D3), is a CIF D2 division, and therefore not eligible for CIF D4 no matter how small of an enrollment the school has.`
    This would also disqualify most of the SDS Coastal League teams that have been reclassified in SDS as D3, a CIF D2 division. La Jolla Country Day was reclassified
    only SDS D4, a CIF D3 division, so they’re still eligble.
    Sorry to have brought up incorrect information.

      Thanks for writing about St. Joseph and looks like the team did indeed beat Palma.
      It’s a screwy system because each section in the state basically can do what they want toward sending teams into the CIF state bowl selection meeting. In the CIFSS, St. Joseph’s small enrollment doesn’t matter because it is in the Northern Division. It would matter if St. Joseph was in a CIFSS playoff division that was sending teams into D3 South because then the cutoff of 500 comes into play. For Palma, it’s even worse because in the CCS if Palma generally has a good team they have to go to the open division. Hope those two teams continue to play each other because it gives us a good barometer for teams from both sections.
