We ran out of time to get last week’s honor roll posted due to Mr. Basketball State POY announcement, but have two weeks rolled into one for this post. In baseball, Ashwin Chona of Sage Hill (Newport Beach) gets a two-hit shutout, but did not throw a fourth straight no-hitter. Alex Reelfs of Los Altos […]
Leading the way among this week’s fearsome foursome is San Bruno of Capuchino’s Aiden Yarwood, who pitched his second no-hitter of the season. The CIF Central Coast Section also gets a sweep with the softball honoree from NorCal coming from Mountain View St. Francis. This week’s two SoCal picks are from CIF Southern Section schools […]
Compared to previous weeks, this was a somewhat quiet one for the state’s top softball teams. We did have to figure out what to do with Orange Lutheran as the Lancers had to drop from No. 3 after suffering a league loss to Mater Dei of Santa Ana. There also was the difficulty of choosing...
One of this week’s honorees, Gianna “Gigi” Mancha from Central of Fresno generates national headlines by striking out 21 batters (every out) in a seven-inning no-hitter against Clovis West. We have details in her writeup about where that ranks in state history. Our other selections this week are from La Puente, Cerritos and Santa Cruz.
Go ahead, call us homers. But it just worked out doing these rankings the same way we’ve done them for 30-plus years that three teams from San Joaquin County (our home base) have landed in the State Top 20 for softball. It doesn’t look like that’s happened before. At the top of the heap, meanwhile,...
Port of L.A.’s Analise De La Rocca resumes her record-breaking with an eight-RBI game and a 15-for-15 strikeout perfect game while another of softball’s best this week is Tulare Mission Oak’s Mariah Mazon, who hits her 30th career homer. In baseball, Jack Williams of Bakersfield Christian goes 6-for-6 in one game with six runs scored […]
It’s a sad reason why we wanted to pick a softball player from Millennium of Tracy this season, but we’ve got a good one who already has state record book totals for career RBI and career homers. This week’s other honorees are from San Jose, San Juan Capistrano and San Diego.
We are moving up the new softball rankings to Mondays for the rest of the season to coincide with national Flo50 rankings we also do for our friends at FloSports.TV. This week, it’s a calm before the storm as many teams will be playing each other at next weekend’s Michelle Carew Classic in Southern California...
With two weeks of performances to search out, we’ve found some real head-turners. In baseball, Jonathan Guardado of La Puente Nogales gets his second and third no-hitters, two players from Etiwanda hit for the cycle in back-to-back games and Wyatt Aguilar of Mountain Empire hits a double in sixth straight game. In softball, we have […]
No. 1 Norco rolls on with 9-0 win earlier this week over state-ranked Mater Dei. Previous No. 2 Amador Valley, however, was upset by Livermore, which helped put Los Alamitos into this week’s No. 2 spot. Unbeaten Rio Mesa also is given a big boost from No. 11 to No. 6 while Great Oak is...
