We will begin choosing the 38th annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State girls basketball teams in the next few days. This is the final list of names we’ll be going through, but last-minute nominations can still be sent and accepted. We’ll have our super elite first team, second team and third team of 10 players each and...
Thanks to contributor Bob Atwell and Mater Dei statistician Steve Colton, who helps with record-keeping for the Mater Dei of Santa Ana boys basketball program, the Monarchs’ all-time varsity record since their first season in 1953 has been confirmed at 1,529 wins and 375 losses. Here’s some perspective on where that total ranks in the […]
Former San Jose Archbishop Mitty CIF state champion Aaron Gordon only one of a growing list of professional athletes who are using mental training app launched earlier this year by Lucid. The Mission of San Francisco Bears also have used it. Now, any high school athletes in all sports can use this app for FREE. […]
Barring any last-minute nominations coming in (which is still possible and we still accept them), this is the final list of names we’ll be working off of to choose the 39th annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State boys basketball teams.

Another loss by Orange Lutheran to Mater Dei (the second of the season) causes the Lancers to fall from third in this week’s rankings and for both unbeaten Gahr of Cerritos and Rio Mesa of Oxnard to inch forward to No. 3 and No. 4. Will those two go all the way to CIFSS Division […]
We are presenting these rankings after most of the major pre-Easter spring break tournaments are done, including the National Classic, Boras Classic for Northern California, the Mike Morrow Lions tourney in San Diego, the Fresno Easter Classic and even the IMG Classic in Florida. All of those created results of course that greatly impacted the...
It all came together for this year’s girls basketball team at Clovis West of Fresno and with one of the most balanced starting fives you’ll ever see, it also is the perfect time to choose the Golden Eagles’ Craig Campbell as the Cal-Hi Sports State Coach of the Year for the 2016-17 season. There was […]
