St. Michael’s Prep is the only Orange County team in the Division 7 playoffs. The Pioneers are champions of the Express League. They have a first-round home game Friday against Riverside Prep, the No. 3 team from the Cross Valley League.
Excelsior Charter is the top-seeded team. Because there were not enough qualifiers to fill a 32-team bracket, Excelsior Charter and second-seeded Santa Clarita Christian receive first-round byes.
