All-State Baseball: Medium, Small

Two of those on first team medium schools are Billy Tellous (left) from Steele Canyon of Spring Valley and Michael Carnazzo of Monterey. Tellous tied for reported lead in the CIF San Diego Section with 10 homers. Carnazzo was the Monterey Herald Player of the Year and will play next at San Jose State.

The 38th annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Baseball Teams continue with these players named from schools that were in CIF section playoffs during the 2019 season that made them medium or small school in class. CIF Sac-Joaquin Section D2 and D4 champions Oakmont of Roseville and Los Banos both check in with three players named on medium schools. For small schools, for the second straight year, Winters leads the pack with four honorees.

As far as memorable seasons go, two of the best in the state (considering the age of the schools) for baseball in 2019 would have to be Oakmont of Roseville and Los Banos. Oakmont won the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section Division II title at 30-3 and probably would have been D2 State Team of the Year had Santa Margarita of the CIF Southern Section not been able to be D2 in its section and win its title. Los Banos was the D3 State Team of the Year (with just one loss overall) and won the SJS D4 championship.

It would have been fun to see the two teams play each other, but the two SJS teams also share in another distinction. They are the only two teams in the state that landed three players each on the Cal-Hi Sports Medium Schools first or second all-state teams. Oakmont’s trio consists of first team T.J. Nichols, second team Greg Nichols and second team Kai Peterson. Los Banos has two on the first team — Trent Mallonee and Maxx Ramirez — and one on second team — Kody Cardoza.

For the Cal-Hi Sports Small Schools first or second all-state teams, the school that had most honorees was the same one that led last year, which would be two-time D4 State Team of the Year Winters. The CIF Northern Section title-churning powerhouse had Small Schools State Player of the Year Daniel Carrion joined on first team by leading hitter Ruben Valencia. The Warriors also had two players on second team in catcher Gary Molina and outfielder Atlas Martinez.

Other teams with two all-state players on medium schools are from Kennedy of La Palma, St. Bonaventure of Ventura, Highland of Bakersfield, San Joaquin Memorial of Fresno, Jurupa Hills of Fontana and Great Oak of Temecula. Colfax was close behind Winters on the small schools side with three honorees. Those with two are Dunn of Ojai, Argonaut of Jackson, Liberty of Madera Ranchos, Fremont Christian, Rio Hondo Prep of Arcadia, Pasadena Poly and Xavier Prep of Palm Desert.

Note: Other than a few exceptions, schools that were eligible to be in the Cal-Hi Sports Division IV or Division V state rankings are considered small and those that were in Division II and Division III are medium. In the CIFSS playoffs, D1 and D2 are large, D3 and D4 are medium, while D5, D6 and D7 are mixed with some in medium and some in smal. In our system, some schools with large enrollments in lower playoff divisions are just too big to be small schools. There also are mixed teams from the CIF Central Coast Section in its D1 (some medium, some large). There is no all-state large schools team, but there is a third team added to the overall teams in which only players from large schools are eligible.
