Oaks Christian is No. 1 seeded for Division 1 softball playoffs

Undefeated Westlake Village Oaks Christian (28-0) received the No. 1 seed Saturday for the Southern Section Division 1 Softball playoffs

As usual, the pairings are loaded with top teams. Villa Park is seeded no. 2, Eastvale Roosevelt is No. 3 and Camarillo n. 4.

Some opponents wonder how good Oaks Christian is, because the Lions did not participate in Carew’s highly competitive tournament.

Villa Park was the n. 1 team for weeks this season until pitcher Sydney Somerndike suffered an ankle injury. He is in good health, making the Spartans a team to beat at the bottom of the group.

The lacrosse pairings. In the Division 1 boys, Santa Ana Mater Dei received the n. 1 seeded, followed by San Juan Capistrano St Margaret’s, Santa Ana Foothill and Corona del Mar.

Pedemontano is n. 1 for girls, followed by Redondo Union, Santa Margarita and Palos Verdes.
