Perhaps this is going to outdate thyself. It’s easy to live in the past and remember the olden days.
For a half, Williams Field did not look like the No. 1 seed in Division III.
Survive and advance is a popular mantra adopted this time of year — and for good reason.
No. 1 seeded Williams Field looked the part in their 56-21 blowout win versus No. 16 Agua Fria in the first round of the Division III State Playoffs.
Well, that was interesting.
Division II, Section II
Won or done?
A 1-over-par round of 73 would suggest the final round of high school golf for Austin Stadeli was fairly mundane and steady. Maybe even a little bit boring.
10. Higley 7-1...
9. Tempe 7-1...
8. Canyon del Oro 7-1...
7. Sabino 6-2...
6. Shadow Ridge 7-1...
No changes in the top half of the rankings. Tempe and Higley weren't overwhelming in their victories but got the job done.

Shadow Ridge falls from No. 5 to No. 9 after its blowout loss to Williams Field (the toughest team Shadow Ridge will play), while Higley falls one spot to No. 10 after its loss to Saguaro. The Knights face neighborhood-rival Williams Field this Friday.
No. 9 Higley at No. 8 Canyon del Oro: Those first two games of the season Higley (pictured in blue) forfeited for using an ineligible might have ultimately helped the Knights stay slightly higher in the playoff seedings, but the Knights would have probably been more comfortable facing No. 6 Shadow Ridge or No. 7 Sabino (plus it wouldn’t set up a possible quarterfinal rematch against No. 1 Williams Field). CDO is balanced, but the Dorados are going to run the ball (240 yards per game, 6.2 yards per carry), and that’s been a troublesome area for the Knights’ defense (see Phoenix Christian, Queen Creek, Saguaro and Williams Field games). Conversely, however, Higley can run the ball with Ricky Marshall and throw with QB Tyler Bloom back in the fold this week after missing the Williams Field loss with a shoulder injury. Further, the CDO schedule hasn’t been stingy, are they ready to handle Higley’s offensive balance.
Prediction: Higley 31, Canyon del Oro 24

5. Ironwood Ridge 2-1
4. Chaparral 2-1
3. Centennial 2-1
2. Marcos de Niza 3-0
1. Salpointe Catholic 4-0
Ironwood Ridge jumps back into the top-5 with an easy win over Canyon del Oro. Chaparral cruised and Peoria Centennial held off Brophy to remain in their spots. Marcos de Niza continues to play with fire but rallied from a 14-point halftime deficit to beat Buena, 78-57. The Padres remain at No. 2 while Salpointe keeps the top spot with an easy victory over Sunnyside.
The toe was bothersome, but not being behind the plate was worse.
What a difference a year makes.
Mesa’s Red Mountain High School finished fourth overall in its first U.S. Academic Decathlon last week.
Wait, these guys again?
Baseball will have a grind of a playoff schedule upcoming for those not among the top eight seeds, but softball — especially Division I — appears to be deeper than ever. Or, at least, deeper than the past five years.
