It’s a wrap for the amazing state record coaching career of Carlmont of Belmont’s Jim Liggett, who ends 41 years with 1,009 wins but not with a CIF Central Coast Section title since his girls fell on Saturday in the Division I section final to San Benito of Hollister. In the D2 final, NorCal No. […]
It was decided this week to get out the latest edition of these rankings AFTER the CIF Southern Section quarterfinals were played on Thursday but in doing that they were released DURING some section playoff games being played on Friday. No. 1 teams remain Orange Lutheran (D1), La Habra (D2), Grand Terrace (D3), Paraclete (D4)...
Last few games of championship season for Palo Cedro Foothill’s Jessica Seeley were hard to believe, including one game in which she hit two grand slams and drove in 12 runs. Another from softball comes from a girl who took an AP exam for four hours before zipping out to have a strong game. In […]
We went with two small school kids for NorCal this week, one who led his team to its second straight section title. The two SoCal choices both are underclass players, one who threw a no-hitter against the champion of one of the state’s best leagues and the other who is setting school records as a […]
Previous No. 17 Corona Santiago is the first ranked team to suffer a season-ending loss in a section playoff. The Sharks, though, are in the CIF Southern Section Division I bracket and won’t be the last team to experience those feelings. The top six teams from last week stay the same with traditional powerhouse Pacifica...
It’s a wrap on the great career of Redding Shasta’s Mia Camuso, who makes the state record book in a multitude of career hitting categories. Other softballers on this week’s honor role include a pitcher from Union Mine, Beth Hammer, who had three straight no-hitters. For baseball, Huntington Beach’s big-time duo of Hagen Danner and […]
As the various playoffs get going across the state – or are about to end in the CIF Northern Section and for small schools in the Sac-Joaquin – here’s a look at those teams that have the best chances to finish high in the Cal-Hi Sports five-division state rankings. Teams slotted in No. 1 positions […]
Promising sophomore Kendall Burnett of San Diego Francis Parker notches second straight no-hitter to earn top honors for SoCal baseball. This week’s other honorees are from Charter Oak (West Covina), Sutter and Mission Oak (Tulare). One of them used to be a bull rider in rodeos.
First losses of the season for Oaks Christian and East Union of Manteca cause some changes as do upsets by Livermore and Carondelet over previous No. 5 Amador Valley. CIF Southern Section Division I top seeds continue to occupy three of the top four slots but our order doesn’t match the seeds. This week’s only...
We do not have a hitting streak to jinx like last week (apologies to Glendale’s Sammy Fabian), but are honoring another softball hitter, Sandra Rodriguez of Palmdale Knight, who going into the state record book after she hit two grand slams and drove in 11 runs in one game. This week’s other players of the […]
