Besides a CIF-SDS final redux in the D2 SoCal final between LCC and Lincoln all four D2 state semifinalists played in the Holiday Classic at Torrey Pines. LCC was the American division champion while Lincoln, Mitty and Newark Memorial all played in the National division. And is this the first time that two San Diego section teams faced off in the SoCal final, boys or girls? Which ever two teams reach the Power Balance Pavilion will result in a balance of power that will be intriguing. If the final four played in their own league the result might be a four-way tie.

It's the first all-San Diego SoCal Final for boys and the fourth time including girls (Mater Dei-Bishop's in 2009, Christian-Julian in 1995 and Christian-Bishop's in 1994). Four strong teams with great players are left in the state playoffs in Division II - should be a great three games to decide the championship.
