Junior Christopher Leung and sophomore Joseph Lee were selected from the Cardinals, who knocked off Galileo in four games to win the San Francisco Section championship. Senior Raymond Chow and sophomore Nick Lew represented the Lions, who went 11-1 during the regular season to edge Lowell by one game.
