Preseason State Super 50 (Part 1)

Our first five to start the 2016 football season is hugely influenced by previous results because we simply can’t rank Mater Dei of Santa Ana (highest ranked from the state in many national polls) ahead of a St. John Bosco team it has lost to six straight times. That kind of ranking needs to be […]

NEW Softball State Top 20

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...

NEW Softball State Top 20

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...
