Orange Empire Conference: Orange Coast, Santiago Canyon, & Cypress.
Pacific Coast Athletic Conference: Desert (COD), Mt San Jacinto, & Palomar.
Western State Conference: Canyons (COC), Ventura, Santa Barbara CIty, & Citrus.
This year's SoCals Championships may come down to a head to head battle between the #1 ranked Desert (COD) team against the #2 ranked Canyons (COC) team. Both teams, along with former CC golf power Long Beach CIty with five (5) SoCal titles, have dominated the SoCals since 1993. Desert (COD) has won six (6) championships; four under current head coach Tony Manzoni ('11, '04. '02, '98) and two under his predecessor Dr John Coefield ('95, '93). In more recent years it has been Canyons (COC), under head coach Gary Peterson, who have dominated winning four (4) championships ('15, '14, '12, '07). Were either Desert (COD) or Canyons (COC) to prevail both current head coaches would become the coach with the most wins (5) since 1993. Currently Manzoni and Peterson are tied with former Long Beach City coach Paul Chafe with four (4) wins each.
The other competing teams - Orange Coast, Mt San Jacinto, Ventura, Santiago Canyon, Palomar, Santa Barbara City, Cypress, and Citrus - are motivated to play the role of "dynasty spoiler" in the always competitive and challenging SoCals Championships.
