Estancia High girls' basketball co-coach Xavier Castellano removed his team's statistics from the popular website MaxPreps when the season ended.
Castellano didn't want to give any opponent a scouting edge in the CIF Southern Section Division IV-A playoffs. It was irrelevant, at least for the first round.
The Eagles play not only a familiar opponent, but one within the district. No. 12-seeded Estancia (20-6), the Orange Coast League champion, will take on Corona del Mar in a Division IV-A first-round game at Estancia on Thursday at 7 p.m.
The Sea Kings (9-17) earned an at-large berth after finishing last in the six-team Pacific Coast League.
Costa Mesa, which finished second in the Orange Coast League, is also in the Division IV-A draw. The Mustangs (12-14) will play host to No. 3-seeded JSerra, an at-large team from the Trinity League, in a first-round game.
Newport Harbor (11-15) earned an at-large berth into the Division II-A playoffs after finishing fifth in the Sunset League. The Sailors will play at No. 7-seeded Eisenhower of Rialto, the Citrus Belt League champion, in the first round Thursday night.
