O.C. teams in this division
Los Amigos (6-4)
Santa Ana Valley (5-5)
Non-O.C. player to watch: Terry Ryan, Pacific, Sr. QB. He has thrown 40 touchdown passes and is averaging 350 passing yards a game.
Analysis: Segerstrom lost to Santa Ana, 42-6, two weeks ago in the game that decided the Golden West League championship. Segerstrom was missing five starters that night. If the Jaguars are all full strength, they will go far in this division. Arroyo’s only loss was to a Division 3 team, Hart of Newhall. Los Amigos finished second in the Garden Grove League, which quality-wise was the best it’s been in several years. They Lobos have to play at Rancho Mirage, a long road trip against a good team.
Champion: Rancho Mirage
