Editor’s note:  This column is part of a continuing series examining how the current CIF playoff seeding system came to be and how that formula is applied to athletic programs in Imperial Valley.

Last week, we examined the 2019 season mass transfer of baseball players from Calexico High to Southwest and, in doing so, identified the state CIF as the state's ultimate authority over student-athletes and noted the CIF San Diego Section’s authority, given certain circumstances, to place teams in any division regardless of power ranking.

I was hoping you could iron out how Calipatria Baseball (D4) and Softball (D3) have been stuck at those spots, while the vast majority of those in their division's schools average a student population 4-8 times larger than CHS. I have compared those schools individually by size and performance over the last 5 years and it just doesn't pan out.
