State Softball Coach of the Year (2018)

You may not believe everything that Amador Valley of Pleasanton’s Teresa Mayes-Borchard has gone through over the last few months and years, but in the end her program won its third CIF North Coast Section Division I title in the last five years and her team ended as the No. 1 ranked team for Northern […]

SoCal/NorCal Players of the Week

For the final weekly player of the week honors of 2017-18, all four obviously had to have led their teams to CIF section titles last weekend. They all did it in different ways for CIF North Coast Section Division I, CIF Southern Section Division II, NCS D4 and Southern D4.

NorCal/SoCal Players of the Week

Three of our honorees this week are done after sparking their teams to section titles, including two of them who will be in the Pac-12 Conference next year. We couldn’t pick someone from SoCal baseball who is done for the year, but did go with a top pitcher from the CIF L.A. City Section who […]

SoCal/NorCal Players of the Week

The challenge this week was not to honor someone who was playing in a Tuesday sectional playoff game so we looked extra-hard to for those who are done or those who weren’t scheduled to play until later this week. Mission accomplished with Red Bluff’s Tanner Tweedt, San Diego Rancho Bernardo’s Nick Seamans, Mountain View St. […]

NorCal/SoCal Players of the Week

How does five homers and 20 RBI for one week sound? That’s what Montebello’s Jose Macias did last week to earn our SoCal Player of the Week selection. The big first baseman has done more in the last three seasons, though, to gain recognition than just pounding the ball against weak competition. We also have […]

The four finalists for Ms. Basketball are joined by 26 others on the 39th annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State teams regardless of CIF division or class. This year’s first team only has three seniors but it’s loaded with six juniors and in a rare occurrence one freshman. We’re lucky to have covered some of the greatest […]

Girls BB: All-State 2nd, 3rd

Here’s where to go to check out all of the writeups for those who are second team overall and third team overall on the 39th annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Girls Basketball Teams. While we don’t agree that a team that didn’t win the CIF Open Division state title should be No. 1 in the nation, […]

NorCal/SoCal Players of the Week

Our two NorCal honorees were picked before they played their first game this week and both Madison Papenhausen from San Marin of Novato and James Pizzuti from El Dorado of Placerville remained on fire as Papenhausen had a no-hitter and Pizzuti drove in five runs. This week’s two SoCal honorees, meanwhile, are from Verdugo Hills […]

NorCal/SoCal Players of the Week

Yes, they are from small school competition, but the ridiculous stats of Woodland Christian’s Jordyn Hutchins, including .821 batting average, 12 homers and 0.00 ERA, isn’t why she’s big time. It’s her major college D1 commitment and a Hot 100 national ranking for the Class of 2020 by FloSoftball. This week’s other honorees are from […]

NorCal/SoCal Players of the Week

Both of our NorCal honorees for this week threw no-hitters, one in softball with 19 strikeouts and one in baseball against a team that was in our State Top 20 two weeks ago. For Southern California, a slugger got the nod in softball with a three-homer game while it was pitching and hitting combined for […]
