Los Alamitos earns No. 1 seed for playoffs

STAFF WRITER

Having put together a perfect regular-season campaign that included knocking off some of the Southland’s perennial powers, Los Alamitos was awarded the No. 1 overall seed in the CIF-Southern Section Division 1 tennis playoffs on Monday.

The Griffins (14-0) were one of four county teams awarded the top overall seed in their divisions. Santa Margarita (Division 2), Canyon (Division 3) and Laguna Beach (Division 4) were also placed atop its bracket.

Orange County schools accounted for the No. 1 overall seed in four of the CIF’s five divisions.

In being selected as the top seed, the Griffins snap University’s seven-year stranglehold as the No. 1 squad headed into the postseason.
