what the heck happened with the Southern Calif. sectional ? I'm looking at the boys 16 players list and a lot of guys are playing up in the age division even some 14s are playing up... why is this?

I remember when this was the most prestigious tournament to win and no one would have played up... what's going on ?

are the players running away and afraid to lose or do they play up ,to get better competition ?

or do they just want to lose early and go home ?

well i know a few ppl that are 16 but playing 18s because they age up in the next 6 months or so. especially now that SoCal is moving to points alot of ppl who age up soon will play up to get the points for their ranking. and i would assume its the same case for most age groups

so you think that a lot of people play up because they want to get a head start on next year's rankings?

so forget this year's rankings?

so when they move up, how are they going win more rather than if they stay and play in the lower age group ?

but some of them I see still have a full year left..

They aren't getting rid of that..
they still hold out the highest seeds until the second weekend where they play.
