As expected on May 21, the Southern Section CIF Council officially approved the new football playoff plan that if successful, could expand to other sports in future seasons. The vote by the leagues (80-4 with six abstentions) will now use the actual in-season results to tabulate ranking for post-season placement into 14 playoff divisions. In the past, division assignments were based on prior season performance resulting in some divisions having too many qualified teams (based on league finish) while some divisions were short qualified teams for the 16-playoff slots in each division.
Breakers finished third last season in the Golden West Conference Pac 4 League after sharing the league crown in 2018. CIF will use the Cal Preps rating system developed by Ned Freeman that you can follow at calpreps.com.

In 2018, the Breakers went 10-3 and achieved a Cal Prep final Southern Section rank of 172 just behind the 2012 squad (11-1-1) which earned a 162nd ranking, the highest Laguna ranking since Freeman started his ranking service.
