Division 4 Playoff notes-
The big question is where do you put Madera South? The Stallions played by far the toughest schedule and every division 4 team would have had an ugly league record playing in the CMAC and against Memorial, Bullard, Edison and Sanger.
The Kerman Lions will get the No 1 seed.
The No 2 seed could go to Bakersfield Christian. Madera South beat Immanuel and Bakersfield Christian lost to Immanuel but MS lost to Madera and that will put them at the No 3 seed.
