DIVISION 7

2014 champion: Nuview Bridge of Nuevo

Top four seeded teams: 1. Excelsior Charter of Victorville (17-2); 2. Santa Clarita Christian (15-6); 3. Rolling Hills Prep of San Pedro (18-4); 4. Animo Leadership of Inglewood (14-5).

O.C. teams: St. Michael’s Prep (7-9).

Analysis: One pitcher can take a team a long ways in any baseball division, and especially in a small-schools division. Michael Gates is that pitcher for St. Michael’s Prep. He has two games of 18 or more strikeouts. A first-round win over Concordia of Sylmar likely would put St. Michael’s up against third-seeded Rolling Hills Prep which takes a 12-game winning streak in to the playoffs. Top-seeded Excelsior Charter is averaging 13 runs a game. Division 7 is the division of lopsided first-round scores. Expect a few of them this week in this division.
