With no CIF section or state playoff games for this spring season, we reverted back to our longstanding tradition of ranking teams in five separate divisions and have chosen a No. 1 team for each one (even though those final rankings are still not done yet) plus we also have our latest Public School State […]

Results from the CIF Central Coast Section help Wilcox of Santa Clara to a brand-new state ranking, but we’ll see if the Chargers can do what league rival Milpitas did last season. This week’s other newcomers are Eastlake of Chula Vista, Moorpark, Palma of Salinas, Cardinal Newman of Santa Rosa and Cathedral of Los Angeles....
