(1) Liberty-Madera Ranchos
First impressions: Shafter is riding a four-game losing streak but still got the No. 3 seed and is dangerous in a weak and shallow division. The Generals, however, haven't been playing well. Liberty-Madera Ranchos an easy call for the top seed here.
Early prediction: Semifinals: Liberty-Madera d. Firebaugh, Corcoran d. Sierra
Championship: Liberty-Madera d. Corcoran
First impressions: Not much to say. It's nice for these teams to have a shot at a title, but outside of those small communities, it's hard to drum up interest for a six-team bracket. Mendota is favored to win its second straight title.
Early prediction: Semifinals: Mendota d. McFarland, Farmersville d. Strathmore
Championship: Mendota d. Farmersville
