Looks like this Years Quals are being played in Long Beach.

For a Zone tournament to be outside its playing area seems ridiculous for a zone w Plenty of Facilities around in close proximity to Irvine since Irvine is hosting it ?

Is it lack of pools or looking for the cheapest pool?

There is a whole other thread about quals under the JOs heading...

It looks like for SoPAC younger the only age group using LBCC is 14u Girls. Everything else is in OC proper...Woollett, Beckman, etc. And the LBCC facility has been used for every major OC tournament this year...its a gorgeous pool.

I was going to say the same thing. I looked at other age groups and boys and they are all over OC

The 14U girls got lucky with Los Al and LBCC college as their pools. They got the two nicest pool decks being used all weekend

Vanguard 14 Boys placed 1st at JO Quals with a 15-0 shut out of CDM. Blowouts in all their matches. Looks like Vanguard is back.

Vanguard waltzed through their games...too big, physical, and skilled. Arguably the best center as well. The TOP 4 teams from what I've seen are Vanguard, Del Mar (three best players are playing 16s), CC United and Stanford.

The next tier includes (in no particular order): SD Shores, CDM, Lamorinda, Greenwich, OCWP, Patriot, SOCAL, LA Premier, La Jolla, North Irvine, Newport, Sand Canyon, Pride, and Laguna Beach.
