Huskies prevailed over previously unbeaten East Nicolaus, 1-0, on Thursday in a showdown between state’s top two small school squads. Both teams are now headed into different CIF section playoffs in “small school” divisions, but competitive equity seeding for the CIF NorCal regional playoffs creates all sorts of possibilities for division placement. We hope you […]
FINAL Medium/Small School Rankings
As previously announced, the final top spots in these rankings went to Granite Hills of El Cajon and Escalon.

Defending State Team of the Year Mission Viejo is a no-brainer pick to start the 2017 season in a familiar position at No. 1 in the state. With the new competitive-equity Division I playoff format in the CIF Southern Section, however, it’s going to be tougher than ever for the Diablos to run the table […]
