With Grant likely done in by loss ...

Question: Now that Grant has lost to Bakersfield, does Grant have any shot at making the state bowl game?

Jay, North Sacramento

Answer: I'd say the chances are zilch. The Pacers couldn't do it last year with a 13-0 record and perhaps their best team in school history. I still think it will take someone upsetting De La Salle in the North Coast Section championships to keep the Spartans out of the D-I state game, despite losing last season to Canyon in the D-I bowl final. The top-ranked Spartans do get a test Friday in having to face visiting Serra of San Mateo, the No. 2 Bay Area team behind the Spartans.
