The CHSAA postseason schedule is beginning to take shape. Below is a look at what I know about the ‘AA’ Archdiocesan tournament, which begins Sunday, and the ‘A’ city tournament, which is scheduled to begin next Tuesday.
Both Iona Prep (in AA) and Kennedy (in A) will be top seeds by virtue of winning their divisions.
Remember: After the Archdiocesan tournament, the CHSAA ‘AA’ teams will be seeded along with the Brooklyn/Queens teams for the intersectional tournament. That’s the tournament that crowns the city champ and determines the CHSAA’s representative in the Federation tournament.
