No. 1 University of Redlands Bulldogs (14-3-2, 12-3-1 SCIAC)
Guiding the Bulldogs to their 13th SCIAC Championship and second-consecutive title, Head Coach Ralph Perez has relied on his entire roster that is filled with youth and ambition to take the top spot. The strength of the defense is found on the backline in sophomore goalkeeper Josh Haskill. He has earned a 9-1-2 overall record while hauling in 41 saves and allowing a mere seven goals against landing him at the top of the SCIAC leaderboard. Sophomore forward Alexander Knox has put together a career-year by leading the Bulldog pack with seven goals.

Claiming the No. 2 spot by tie-breaker rules, the Panthers make their third postseason tournament appearance in a row, this time they will be hosting a tournament match for the first time in school history. Junior midfielder Marco Saglimbeni and Boston Kimmel lead the team and are top five in the SCIAC in goals scored with a total of 16 between them. Kimmel adds another 7 assists to his success claiming the No. 2 SCIAC spot in that category.
No. 3 University of La Verne Leopards (15-4-1, 11-4-1 SCIAC)
Junior forward Nathan Gonzalez finished the season tied for the lead in conference goals with 12 and dished out 6 assists to end the regular season with 30 points as the SCIAC's overall points leader.
No. 4 Occidental College Tigers (13-3-3, 10-3-3 SCIAC)
