Clovis West, which is unbeaten against section opposition, was given the No. 1 seed for the D-I boys tennis team playoffs.
Tehachapi (D-II), Kingsburg (D-III), Bakersfield Christian (D-IV), Arvin (D-V) and Strathmore (D-VI) also were awarded top seeds in their respective divisions for the postseason, which begins today.
The Eagles, who have won the past two D-I titles, received a first-round bye and await the No. 8 Stockdale-No. 9 Clovis winner for a quarterfinal match Friday. Liberty-Bakersfield drew the No. 2 seed, with last season's runner-up, Buchanan, the third seed.
In D-II, 2010 runner-up El Diamante was promoted to D-I, one of four finalists bumped up a division through the section's competitive equity realignment process.
Never miss a local story.
The finals are set for May 24 in divisions I, IV and V, while championship matches in divisions II and III are scheduled for May 18.
A pair of defending champions, El Diamante's Ryan Andrada and Clovis West's Stefan Loop, received No. 1 seeds for the individual tournament, which begins Saturday in Visalia.
Andrada, who upset last season's No. 1 seed and teammate Josh Lorentzen for the singles title, was given the No. 1 seed this year.
Andrada's strongest competition for the No. 1 seed, Clovis West freshman Billy Grifith, had to withdraw from the event because he has a national tournament to play in this weekend.
Loop, who teamed with Vincent Paganetti to win the doubles title last season, will chase a second straight doubles crown this season as the top seed along with Adam Beach.
