After one of its best seasons in school history, Terra Nova High School was rewarded with the No. 1 seed in the Central Coast Section Open Division playoffs Sunday.

The Tigers rolled through the regular season en route to a Peninsula Athletic League Bay Division title, compiling a sparkling 10-0 record in the process.
