SAN DIEGO — Less than a month into the 1987-88 basketball season, every team has qualified for the playoffs San Diego Section playoffs.
Because California state championships in basketball will now be decided in five enrollment divisions instead of three, San Diego will follow suit.
And to have more champions, more playoff teams are needed. So, no matter where a San Diego team finishes, it will participate in postseason play.
The new categories:
--Division I: Schools with an enrollment of 2,000 or more students.
--Division II: 1,500-2,000 students.
--Division III: 1,000-1,500 students.
--Division IV: 400-1,000 students.
--Division V: 400 or less students.
"In the past, there were schools competing for state championships that had a tremendous disparity in the size of school enrollment," said Kendall Webb, San Diego Section commissioner. "The state did a survey of the size of schools state-wide and that breakdown provided an even amount of schools in each division."
