Three Southern California schools will be looking to repeat as, well, the closest thing California has to state high school soccer champions, and they're not the only local teams expecting success.
The fourth edition of the CIF Southern California Regional Championships begins Monday, and teams from the Southern Section are reasonably expected to dominate. All six titles last year were won by teams from the state's largest section, with five of the six losing finalists also from the Southern.
Included among the victors: Paramount (boys Division I), Salesian (boys Division III) and Flintridge Sacred Heart (girls Division III), who have returned to defend their crowns.
They're among 24 Southern Section schools, with six more from the L.A. City Section, in six eight-team brackets leading to title games Friday and Saturday at Warren High School in Downey.
The tournament also includes schools from the San Diego and Central sections. The Central Section is for schools in the southern Central Valley, stretching just north of Fresno.
