The defending district champion Bears are seeded second again in the University Heights Division I District, again behind Strongsville, which was nearly unanimously voted No. 1. The Bears voted Strongsville the No. 2 seed behind Brecksville, which beat Strongsville early this season.
North Royalton got all the second-seed votes, except for two, Padua and Shaker Heights, which both voted for Brecksville. The third seed went to Brecksville, while Lakewood got the nod at No. 4.
The Bears will open postseason play on Oct. 20 at 7 p.m. at home against No. 11 seed Garfield Heights.
They will play in an Oct. 27 district semifinal, also at home, most likely against Brecksville. The winner will play in a 1 p.m. Halloween day district final at a neutral site, probably against top-seeded Strongsville.
