Richmond Salesian’s Stephen Pezzola is a former corporate attorney and currently his school’s president. But his commitment to the girls basketball team and its players has been obvious since he began coaching in 2009-10, and now those efforts have been recognized by his selection for the highest coaching honor in the state. This is the […]
Congratulations to all of the 2022 Cal-Hi Sports State Coaches of the year for girls basketball. These are the ones for each of the five state divisions, although we do combine the Open and Division I.
Right on the heels of the NorCal nominees we bring you all of the names of players on our virtual board so far for Southern California (L.A. City, San Diego & Southern Sections). This will be the 42nd annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Teams in girls basketball and this is simply the starting point. Any coach, […]
This year will be the 42nd annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Teams in girls basketball and just like the boys we get started with a list of nominations from the CIF sections in Northern California (including the Central Section).

The Cal-Hi Sports State Players of the Year honors have been selected for more than 40 years and the winners go onto all-time state lists that go back for more than 120 years. Here are the finalists for this year’s boys & girls top honors (four boys & six girls). Note: We hope you enjoy […]

The theme of the CIF state championships in Division 1 on Friday at the Golden Center for both boys & girls was about longtime successful coaches winning their first state crowns. The Damien of La Verne boys also broke a streak of five straight wins for Northern California teams and showed the gap between the […]
