It’s the final day of the regular season. Let that soak in for a moment.
Tomorrow, playoff seeds will come out and then the madness will begin. Before you know it, there will be outbracket games on Wednesday and a busy first round on Thursday.
But first, there is much to be decided. The majority of the teams in Section 1 will be in action today, and many of the games will have ripple effects when it comes to league standings and the final playoff seeds. Mamaroneck has locked up the No. 1 seed in Class AA, but today’s games will determine which teams get the top billing in Class A and Class B.
There were several good options for games to cover, but I’ve decided on Harrison vs. Byram Hills, which is basically a one-game playoff for a league title. The winner will be crowned league champ, not to mention the fact that both teams are jockeying for a top five seed in Class A.
Follow me on Twitter @vzmercogliano for live updates from that game and more results. Also tonight, stay tuned as we finalize our seeding projections. The seeds won’t be official until tomorrow, but we should be able to accurately project once all of today’s games have been completed.
