Dan and I will be back out today for the Class AA and C quarterfinals. Unfortunately, the schedule does not allow for multiple stops, but I will post updates throughout the afternoon on Twitter @LoHudInsider. My primary focus will be Spring Valley and New Rochelle.
Dan (@LoHud_DeFran) will head to North Rockland to see the Red Raiders face Scarsdale. Rockland County is 0 for the County Center so far. North Rockland and Spring Valley will try to change that.
Also, Children’s Village will open the Class C playoffs as the top seed after a controversial decision by Section 1 to reclassify the Hawks because of a clerical error. It reshuffled the Class C draw, bumping each of the other seven teams down a spot.
Check back later for recaps and a look at the County Center schedule for the eight lucky teams who advance.
