As the Coronavirus pandemic continues to progress in a high percentage of counties in the state and as most school districts have announced reopening in August with no students yet back on campus, the California Interscholastic Federation announced its 2020-21 school year calendar on Monday, saying the 10 different sections could set their own calendars […]
How much of a 2020 high school football season in the state to be played remains to be determined and if it starts as scheduled in August is big IF as well. Still, with some other preseason national rankings about to drop, we took the time to compile an early, maybe preseason Top 25. We […]
Here’s the girls version of our first run-through of nominees on our board to get us going toward eventual selection for the 40th annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Teams for girls basketball. These Class of 2020 seniors really deserve the recognition in light of things they may be missing in coming weeks due to the Coronavirus […]
Texas may have Patrick Mahomes quarterbacking the Kansas City Chiefs in this year’s Super Bowl, but California crushes the Lone Star State for having the most Super Bowl high school alums (and easily beats every other state) with 13.

It’s another big win for Helix of La Mesa and now that the Highlanders are unanimous No. 1 in San Diego they pop up to No. 10 in this week’s state rankings. Mater Dei stays No. 1 with trip this week to Washington D.C. after its bye week while No. 2 St. John Bosco is...
This second group of elite teams leads off with Calabasas, which is continuing to build toward a CIF state title. We also had a hard time coming up with a team to start out highest in the CIF Central Coast Section, so we just stuck two of them in this group right next to each […]
As practices for the 2017 football season get underway in the state, we have a first draft of what the Cal-Hi Sports preseason state rankings may look like with teams that would be in our top 10 as of the beginning of August. We can say for sure the top four won’t change when the […]
St. Mary’s being higher-ranked than Folsom proved to be correct as the Rams rolled over the Bulldogs 56-25 to win SJS Division I title. The bigger question for the section rankings, however, is what to do about Del Oro as it looks to win a second straight CIF state title. Should the Golden Eagles continue […]
